Ok, so to actually solve the question and get the right answer..
So the equation to solve this question would be- 12,000+ (1,120,000 x 0.03)
Acording to Grade 8 Math curriculum BEDMAS (brackets, exponets, dividing, multiplying, adding, then subtracting) you would do what was in the brackets first. The answer is 33,600.
So now your equation would be 12,000+ 33,600.
The answer is 45, 600.
Hope this helped!
