    are you trying to simplify: \[\frac{16}{4} \cdot \frac{4}{2} \cdot 256?\]

    Correct but the way is written is not like an equation is just from left to right with the actual icons |dw:1440391854458:dw|

    That is why my answer was not balance to be the correct answer. I was simplifying by doing the multiplication first and than divide. Thanks

    16 divided by 4=4 4 times 4=16 16 divided by 2=8 and 8*256= 2048 yep seems great
