Yeah. Ns kept suggesting they have actually to deal with the Parantheses first, PEMDAS, and also all, however their logic gained them to 60/5*(2) so climate they followed that with 12*2 = 24. I retained telling castle there to be no "*" authorize so they had to multiply first because castle still have to address parantheses first, yet alas, they didn"t believe me.

You are watching: 60 divided by 5 (7-5)

No Gh0sty!

Parentheses first: 60/5*2

Divide and also Multiply have the very same precedence therefore you occupational from left to right:

60/5*2→ 12*2→ 24

If girlfriend legit put the equation into a genuine life TI-84 calculator as "60/5(7-5)" you"ll obtain 6. The scientific calculator on the computer system is incompatible through that equation because it**forces**you to ar the multiplication price in in between the 5 and the (.

What you"re saying here is the the equation is 60 over 5 then multiply through 2 rather of 60 over 5(2)

It doesn"t say that there"s a multiplication sign in the middle of 5 and also (7-2). Adding a sign there would make the equation different. It would certainly be regrouped into:

60 ÷ 5 × ( 7 - 5 ) = ( 60 ÷ 5 ) ( 7 - 5 )

Which is different from the original equation.

But if no multiplication sign was added, it would certainly be purely "60 divided by the product the 5 and also 7 minus 2" i m sorry is 6.

60 ÷ 5 ( 7 - 2 )

60 ÷ 5 ( 2 )

60 ÷ 10

6

Remember the the term 5(7-5) is a monomial hatchet that has been streamlined from (35-25) and also that you should DISTRIBUTE the 5 earlier into the brackets to settle the brackets.

It says

60 ÷ 5 ( 7 - 2 )

60 ÷ 5 ( 2 )

60 ÷ 10

6

But that"s a typo. Meant

60 ÷ 5 ( 7 - 5)

60 ÷ 5 ( 2 )

60 ÷ 10

6

Was reasoning ahead come the answer.

There is nothing in the initial expression to suggest that 5(7-5) has actually been factored from (35 - 25). If it had actually been the correct method to refer the an outcome would have actually been 60/(5(7 - 5))

60/5(7 - 5) has an comprise multiplication so should be read as 60/5*(7-5)

To avoid ambiguity either use parentheses or compose as\(\frac605(7-5)\text or\frac605(7-5)\)as appropriate.
