Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, this is mostly about the order of operations: the BIDMAS/BODMAS rule Firstly do the stuff in the brackets. And more importantly the stuff in the inner brackets first. so the first operation you do is (4)^2 which equals: (4) x (4) = 16 so that it becomes: 12/3 x (8 + 16 6) + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once again do the stuff in the brackets first, so you get (8 + 16 6) = (8 +10) = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now your expression is as follows: 12/3 x (2) +2, according to the BIDMAS/BODMAS rule, next you need to multipication, i.e 12/3 x 2 = 24/3
