Evaluate the expression (7 - 3)3 + 4 2
(The 4 has the power of 2)
Please help! Maybe just explain it? When I tried, I got 18, and 18 isn't a answer choice. TIA!

  1. look at it this way, 7-3=4. 3+(4x4). if that makes sense to you, your awnser should be 23

  2. (7 - 3)3 + 4^2 = 4*3 + 4^2 = 12+16 = 28
    (7 - 3)^3 + 4^2 = 4^3 + 4^2 = 64+16 = 80
    I see no way to get 18. How did you evaluate it?

    C'mon -- if you tried, but think you're wrong, show us why. You want us to show how we get our answer, right?
