4 by the power of 2 2(3x5+1) I have no clue what to do with the answer I got from the parenthesis since you are supposed to do that first.......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry what is going on in that problem? are you saying: \[4^{22(3x^5+1)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4^22(3 \times 5+1)\] after thinking about it I think you mean this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the grouping symbols you have 3(5)+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have multiplication and addition there the multiplication comes first then the addition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so that is an x and not a multiplication symbol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I had it right a sec ago \[4^22(3 \times 5+1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0order of operations: 1) grouping symbols 2) exponents 3) mult/div as occurs left to right 3) add/sub as occurs left to right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looking at 1) we do have grouping symbols contained in the grouping symbols is 3(5)+1 we are to do multiplication before addition so you have to compute 3(5) and then add 1 on to that to get the answer for 3(5)+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and you know 3(5)+1 =?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so we have \[4^22(3 \times 5+1) \\ 4^22(15+1) \\ 4^22(16)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we have exponents subtraction and multiplication

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0according to the order of operations we are to take care of our exponenets first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and remember 4^2 means 4 times 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4^22(3 \times 5+1) \\ 4^22(15+1) \\ 4^22(16) \\ 162(16)\] now only two operations remain subtraction and multiplication you are to do the multiplication first then the subtraction you should get @templeguy 's answer after completion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didn't know what to do with the other half because I had 16 but I didn't know if I as supposed to add it multiply it or what. So it was kinda just sitting there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0162(16) yes this means we need to multiply 2 and 16 which gives us 32 and so you have 1632 you can also write this as 32+16 or (3216) (16) 16
