How do you solve this? I have tryed so many times and can not get the right answer.

(1.65-1.05)^2/0.4+0.8

The answer is suppose to be 1.7 but everytime I do the problem i don't get anything near that answer. Help would be greatly appreciated.

• Math -

1.65-1.05 = .6
.6^2 = .36
.36/.4 = .9
.9 +.8 = 1.7
