Math...Applying the Order of Operations
posted by Ryan .
Can you please show me where i'm going wrong?
Here's the question:
2(14+35/7)  ((14 + 35)/7)
A.28 B.31 C.26 D.26 E.38
Here are the rules that apply:
Multiplying and Dividing Integers.
*If the signs are the same,then give the answer a positive sign.
*If the signs are different,then give the answer a negative sign.
*Do all the work in the symbols first etc, etc. i.e. P E M D A S
Here is only one of my attempts.
2(14+35/7)  ((14 + 35)/7)
2(14+5)  ((14 + 35)/7)
2(19)  ((49)/7)
38  (+7)
38 + (7)
31
Even yet another answer. Hopefully i have arrived at the correct answer this time.
Please help !
Your service is appreciated.

38  7 = 31 is the correct answer
