(2)^4 + 2(5)^2/(2)(-3)
= -11

OpenStudy (anonymous):
how did you get minus eleven, would you mind giving me a quick step by step run through?

OpenStudy (mimi_x3):
typed it in the calculator xD

OpenStudy (anonymous):
LOOOOOOOOOOL

OpenStudy (anonymous):
that cannot be right 2*5^2/-6 is not an integer

2^4=16
5^2=25
so it is
16+2*25/-6=16-25/3=48/3-25/3=23/3

OpenStudy (mimi_x3):
oh woops my bad i got it wrong xD

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):
but the answer is - 11

OpenStudy (anonymous):
than u used the brackets incorrectly

OpenStudy (anonymous):
(p^4+2r^2)/pq=-11

OpenStudy (mimi_x3):
see~ i was right, its not that complicated

OpenStudy (mimi_x3):
oh yeah my bad sorry

OpenStudy (anonymous):
IT's -11 because p^4+2r^2/pq = 16+50/-6 = -11

OpenStudy (anonymous):
yes

OpenStudy (anonymous):
Yes, Mimi had it right since the beginning (but didn't know why)

OpenStudy (anonymous):
