Homework Help: math

8 x 4 is....?
Then subtract 3.

You should use parentheses to clarify whether you mean
8x(4-3) or (8x4)-3.
They are not the same.
If you were keying in the numbers and operations on a calculator, the multiplication would occur first, but writing it the way you have done is ambiguous.
