From what i can tell most people are getting this wrong.
But you follow the rules for simple math --
|First perform any calculations inside parentheses.|
|Rule 2:||Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.|
|Rule 3:||Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.|
So it is 3-18+2= -13
And yet people think I am wrong ?? I simplified it even more for them ---- 3+2 =5 5-18= -13
Why are so many getting this wrong? Or maybe I am wrong---- time to go back to grade school I guess.
