I get 12, not 17.

you have to do the order of operations first, everything in parethesis first and multiplication/division must be done before addition/subtraction.

(2x5-1)=9

13-7+9=15

15/3 + 7=

5+7=12

12

Hope this is right and I hope it helped.

13 - 7 + (2 x 5 - 1)/3 + 7

= 6 + (9)/3 + 7

= 6 + 3 + 7

= 16
