**Question:**What is the answer?

This has to do with order of operations.

**Answers:**

3x2+16/4-3

6+16/4-3

6+4-3

10-3

7

6

Hi!

It is either: (3)(2) + 16/ (4-3)

6 + 16/1

6 + 16 = 22

Or...

[(3)(2) + 16]/(4-3)

[6 + 16]/1

= 22

Both have the same result!

Or...

[(3)(2) + 16/4] -3

[6 + 4] - 3

10 - 3

= 7

You have to be careful when you use words to describe an operation! The terms can be associated in numerous ways and not exactly the one you need!

Goodluck!

7

according to order of operations and the way you wrote it without parentheses it's

3*2 which is 6

then 16/4 which is 4

so far, it's 6 + 4 - 3

6+4=10

10-3=7

Do "times" first, so 3 times 2

Second, do divided, so 16 / 4

then do the + and - last.

You should get (3*2)+(16/4)-3

Do the stuff in ( ) first and you should get the right answer.

The rule is do multiplication and division first (whichever one is first). Then do addition and subtraction second.

6+4-10-3=7

The answer is 7. A good way to remember order of operations is PEMDAS (parentheses, exponents, multiplication or division, addition or subtraction) Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally

Hope it helps. . .

The order of operations is that you place parentheses around each function and then add/multiply before you subtract/divide.

Thus, {(3*2) + 16} / (4-3)

{6 + 16} / 1

22/1 = 22

Seven!
