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

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!
