Pre-algebra 7th NEED HELP

posted by on .

This is a question my teacher gave me and there are no parenthesis or whatever you might think it needs. It's 20 divided by 4 minus 5 plus 12. I think the answer is -12, but I'm not sure. PLEASE HELP!!!

    If it's
    (20/4) - 5 + 12, that is
    5 - 5 + 12 = +12.

    It's not solvable as its stated.

    20/4 = 5
    5-5 = 0
    0 + 12 = 12

    OR
    20/(4-5) = -20
    -20 + 12 = -8

    OR
    You get the idea --
