**drwls**, Sunday, January 6, 2008 at 10:25amDepending upon the order of operation, you can get several different answers. You need to use parentheses and brackets to specify the order of operation. In your case, you calculated

36 + [(9/3)*5]= 51

What you wrote could just have easily have been interpreted as

[(36+9)/3]*5 = 75

or

(36+9)/(3*5) = 3
