    this question makes no sense to me.can someone please use their time to help me real quick???

  • math -

    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.

    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!

    Only a few of the regular tutors are able to post links on Jiskha. We have this restriction to ensure that inappropriate sites are not posted.
