Well first start solving the problem inside the parentheses

5. anonymous

-12 -10?

6. ahvei

i think -6 is the answer

7. anonymous

i need to go through all the steps

$12/3* (-8+(16) -6)+2$First you solve for what's inside the parentheses, I already squared the 4. $(-8 + 16 -6) = 2$Then we start working around that, $\frac{ 12 }{ 3 }\times 2 + 2$ $4\times2+2$ $(4\times2)=8$ $(8+2)=10$
