Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first you must put any 'minus' signs inside the brackets they refer to. Rewrite the sum with the brackets evaluated...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(btw  have you missed out a + or  between the last 2 brackets?)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and first is B for brackets so do what I suggested first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay but i keep getting 16 & in my book it has a different answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.084(2)(+2)(3) so using the rules we see that ((+2)(3) would come first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes and that would be 6 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then you have 84(2)(6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right now do the multiplication of 1*(2) and 1*(6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that should give you 84+2+6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from there you can just do 84 = 12 and 2+6 = 8 and add the results together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay i think i got it from there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is an "order of operations" problem. In this case, the parentheses are here for only two reasons: 1) to separate a negative sign from an addition sign 2) to show a product Using PEMDAS, you can skip PE, and go right to MDAS which means the following: MD  multiplications and divisions in the order they appear from left to right AS  additions and subtractions in the order they appear from left to right \(84(2)(+2)(3)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(84(2)\color{red}{(+2)(3)}\) The operation shown in read above is a multiplication, so it has to be done first. \(= 84(2)\color{red}{(6)}\) Now all you have left is subtractions, so do them in order from left to right, one at a time. \(= 84(2)(6)\) \(= 12(2)(6)\) \(= 10(6)\) \(= 4\)
