## nudeoua one year ago Evaluate [(40 + 5) − 3^2] ÷ 9*2 8.6 43 8 2 I got two, but the right answer was eight.. This is what I did : {(40+5)-3^2}/9*2 {45-9}/9*2 36/18 2 Where did I go wrong?

1. AaronAndyson

{45-9}/9*2<-- till this step everything is correct.

2. AaronAndyson

45 - 9 = ?

3. AaronAndyson

36 right?

4. AaronAndyson

Now, $\frac{ 36 }{ 9 } \times 2$

5. AaronAndyson

36 divide by 9 gives 4

6. AaronAndyson

and 4*2 = 8

7. AaronAndyson

Getting it @nudeoua ??
