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.......

@IrishBoy123 sorry if I was confusing I really don't explain things very well soooo

I'm sorry what is going on in that problem? are you saying: \[4^{2-2(3x^5+1)}\]
freckles
  • freckles
oh is that one x a multiplication sign
freckles
  • freckles
\[4^2-2(3 \times 5+1)\] after thinking about it I think you mean this
freckles
  • freckles
order of operations say to perform what is in the grouping symbols first
freckles
  • freckles
in the grouping symbols you have 3(5)+1
freckles
  • freckles
you have multiplication and addition there the multiplication comes first then the addition
freckles
  • freckles
so 3(5)+1=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[4^{2}-2(3x5+1)\]
freckles
  • freckles
oh so that is an x and not a multiplication symbol
freckles
  • freckles
are you suppose to evaluate the expression for some x value?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@freckles no it's just a multiplication symbol
freckles
  • freckles
so I had it right a sec ago \[4^2-2(3 \times 5+1)\]
freckles
  • freckles
order of operations: 1) grouping symbols 2) exponents 3) mult/div as occurs left to right 3) add/sub as occurs left to right
freckles
  • freckles
looking 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
freckles
  • freckles
and you know 3(5)+1 =?

16 @freckles
freckles
  • freckles
right so we have \[4^2-2(3 \times 5+1) \\ 4^2-2(15+1) \\ 4^2-2(16)\]
freckles
  • freckles
now we have exponents subtraction and multiplication
freckles
  • freckles
according to the order of operations we are to take care of our exponenets first
freckles
  • freckles
and remember 4^2 means 4 times 4

@Haley123450 :-))
freckles
  • freckles
\[4^2-2(3 \times 5+1) \\ 4^2-2(15+1) \\ 4^2-2(16) \\ 16-2(16)\] 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
I 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
And I totally agree
freckles
  • freckles
16-2(16) yes this means we need to multiply 2 and 16 which gives us 32 and so you have 16-32 you can also write this as -32+16 or -(32-16) -(16) -16

anyways i hope you feel better about this problem
