 Question 298332: I have solved this problem, but I doubt if I did this in the correct manner or even if the problem is correct. Here is the problem as stated: [(37*8.9)(4-2(3-1))]-5(2/(2-7))(5)= ? This is my work below: [(37*8.9)(4-2(3-1))]-5(2/(2-7))(5)= ? (original problem) 1.) 37*8.9 = 329.3 (I start by going left to right - multiplying the first set of parentheses) 2.) (3-1) = 2 (I than remember to always work the inner most part of the problem) 3.) (4-2+2) = 2 (According to my instructor, when it comes to multiplication/division and addition/subtraction, one is able to go from left to right rather than adding or subtracting first. I am not sure if this is correct, but here this is done by his teaching) 4.) (2-7)=-5 (I than move on to the right side of the equal sign) 5.) 2/-5=-0.4 (I than finish what is inside of the parentheses) 6.) 329.3+4-5(-0.4)(5) (This is what I have thus far into the equation) 7.) -5(-0.4)=2 329.3+4+2(5) 8.) 2(5)=10 329.3+4+10 9.) 343.3 (After I combine the last 3 terms) So... I'm pretty sure that there is something I missed while working the problem. Please help me understand what I might have done wrong. Thanks! Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9143)
