**Reiny**, Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 7:19pmYou have now received 3 answers of -.25 from 3 different tutors.

That answer is correct according to the way you posted the question.

I also read it as:

((√3)^2 - 5)/8

= -2/8 = -1/4 or -.25

If you meant something different use brackets to establish the correct order of operations.
