8^2 + 9 (12/3x2)-7

64 + 2 - 7 = 59

Or -- depending upon how (12/3x2) is interpreted -- it could be:

64 + 6 - 7 = 63

i think it is 12 divided by 3 times 2

In computer typing * is used for multiplication and / is used for division, so your question is

8^2 + 9(12/3*2) - 7

= 64 + 9(8) -7

= 64 + 72 - 7

= 129
