**[2 X (12 + 5 – 10)] + 6 } divide by 5 then multiply X 20 =80
**[2 X 7 ]+ 6 }divide by 5 then multiply X 20 = 80
20 divide by 5 then multiply X 20 = 80

Actually, the answer to my math poser is: 100.
Just calculate it without any brackets and you’ll get that answer.:D

Math question…I thought one did addition & subtraction first if there were no parenthesis, then multiplication & division? Oh well, who cares, right?

DU

There is an order of presidence in math operations: PEMDAS
Please excuse My Dear Aunt Sally
It stands for “Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction”. This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank).
Based on this order of presidence the answer to your problem is 43.

“It was the best of times…it was the blurst of times”.
spoken about that monkey on “The Simpsons”, one of many that were commissioned by Mr. Burns to write the best all-time novel.

Another person that used that quote: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” was Charles Dickens in the 1st line of “A Tale of Two Cities”.

Jim C., that quote from Julias Caesar about “The Valiant” is one of my favourites.

My brain is not fit to deal with the spelling of “Aulde Lange Syne”, my dears.
Even before GBS, it was all Gaelic to me.

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…”
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the [B]depth and breadth and height[/B]
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
