explain it: which is a true statement , 5x4+1=25 or 3+7x2=17?

explain your answer

  • math -

    the second one;
    the first one- 5*4=20--20+1=21 not 25
    the second one- 7*2= 14--14+3=17

  • math -

    Depending upon where you put parentheses, which MUST be used for clarification, either can be correct.
    5 x (4+1) = 25
    3 + (7x2)=17

  • math -

    I think it is neither because they both have different answers then the ones that are already there

  • math -

    5x4+1=25

  • math -

    Depending on where you place the parentheses either problem could be correct, but you must use the parentheses to clarify how the problem should be done.
