Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Glenda on Tuesday, August 7, 2007 at 2:01am.

Insert grouping symbols in the proper place so that the given value of the expression is
obtained.

5-3.2+8.5-2;28

I tried it different times and I got 30, so I give up, I need help please. Thanks!

Is the decimal point in 3.2 and 8.5 supposed to indicate multiplication?

If so, you should use another symbol such as x or *.

[(5-3)*2] + 8*(5 -2)= 4 + 24 = 28
