Homework Help: math

Posted by B8 on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 9:19pm.

the question is Alyssa ate 3 more than 1/2 as many candy corns as Hayley. If Alyssa ate 17 candy corn, find the number of candy corn Hayley ate?
First I thought to do 17-3=14
14x2=28
This was my first thought but then I wondered if you multiplied first
17x2=34 and then adding the +3
giving you 37
I think the first way is the correct way but I am not sure.
Can you help verify which step would be done first?
thanks
