Thanks for showing your work. It helps us to know where you are having trouble.

#4. [25/ (2^3-3)]*2 the star two represents multiplied by 2

My way of solving:

[25/(8-3)]*2 (this was suppost to be-

[25/5]*2 multiplied by 2)

[5]*2 You are ok to here. 5^2 = 25 and not 10.

My answer:10 ( then my answer is 10) is this correct

Yes, 10 is correct.

thank you

I went back and looked at the original problem and it is posted the same way here as it was originally; therefore, I am the one that made the mistake. I misread the * (meaning multiplied by) for a caret (^--meaning raised to the power). So your original answer of 10 was correct then as it is correct now.
