    sir but in this one option is surely correct i am not geting that one and plz say me hw we will give preference in solvation *,+,-,/(WHICH ONE IS FIRST)

  • maths -

    the order of operation is
    BEDMAS

    B - brackets first , you don't have any
    E - exponents, you don't have any
    D - division, in the order they come
    M - multiplication, in the order the come
    A - addition
    S - subtraction

    so for the first one
    32 + 14 - 6 * 40 - 8
    = 32+14 - 240 - 8
    = 46 - 240 - 8
    = -202 , as I had before.

    I will do one more, the last one:
    32/6*14+32-8
    = 32+6-14*32-8
    = 32+6-448-8
    = -418, again, not true

    The others are also false.
    Unless you made an error in typing, the answers do not make sense.
    Since in the conversion there is no division, how can each of the answers contain a decimal?
    =
