Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07. But the thing is I plugged it in to the original equation and I ended up with a random number that's bigger than 113.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm. Let's see. 3(7) + 2[4+6(7)] = 113. 21 + 2(4+42) = 113. 21 + 2(46) = 113. 21 + 92 = 113. 113 = 113.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you don't know what I did then this is what I did. 3(7) + 2(4) + 2(6*7) = 113 21 + 8 + 84 = 113 which is not 113.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lol 21 + 8 +84 does equal 113.
