what is the simplified portion of the grouping??? 5 + 4 (100  8 x 3)x 4.

this question makes no sense to me.can someone please use their time to help me real quick???

5 + 4 (100  8 x 3)x 4
= 9  (100  24)x4
= 9  (76)x4
= 9  304
=  295

how do you post links in answers? It won't let me for some reason.

the "grouping" is just a math term for the part of the equation in parentheses.
so,
(100  8 x 3)
= (10024)
= (76)
= 76
hooray math!
