# 3 times 2 + 16 divided by 4 - 3?

This has to do with order of operations.

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!

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!
