**MathMate**, Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 12:16pmIf the expression is evaluated as is, it will give a value of 24 using the usual rules of priorities of operations.

Parentheses can be used to modify the values, for example

36/(4+5)-1+2x3+12/3+1 = 14

36/4+5-1+2*3+12/(3+1) = 22

Try other ways of putting parentheses and you will get it. You only need to put one pair of parentheses for this particular problem.
