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!
