Simplify the expression. 5+4 times (8-6)^2
Have you heard of PEMDAS?
Yes. Like two years ago. But I think I'm doing something wrong.
What do you think the answer is?
What do you think you're doing wrong?
Well I keep getting 36. But I don't think that's right.
Okay let's look at the very first equation. 5+4*(8-6)^2
Tell me what you think you should do first.
What does (8-6) come out to?
Okay so now we have 5+4+2^2
Well then you do the exponents. So 2 squared is 4.
We want to solve for the exponents now.
So our equation now is 5+4+4
that equals 13!
No. It's 5+4x4
My bad I thought it was a plus
36 is correct.
So then I was trying to figure out if I add it before or what. That's where I'm confused.
Okay cool thanks!
Don't be confused. You're overthinking this.
Thanks! I'll recommend you.
