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
55 = 0
0 + 12 = 12
OR
20/(45) = 20
20 + 12 = 8
OR
You get the idea
