    5 + 4 -(100 - 8 x 3)x 4
    = 9 - (100 - 24)x4
    = 9 - (76)x4
    = 9 - 304
    = - -295

    how do you post links in answers? It won't let me for some reason.

  • math -

    the "grouping" is just a math term for the part of the equation in parentheses.

    so,
    -(100 - 8 x 3)
    = -(100-24)
    = -(76)
    = -76

    hooray math!
