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 --
