Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so use the order of operations to solve the equation. First, you do multiplication: 2*3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Next, do division: 36/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait, is this asking for you to find an equivalent equation to that? Because, that can also be done. The solved answer just isn't there, so apparently we have to find an equivalent expression to that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, I am guessing that we have to find an equation that equals to the given, with PEMDAS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It would not be a, because it is [18  4] + 1. For b, it is {(86)*3}/2. Which is [2*3]/2. 6/3 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, but let's check the other 2 first. C.362*3 > 36  3 = 30. D.3*64/2 > 18  2 > 16
