# Pre- algebra question read below?

11+56 divided (2•7)

Relevance

ambiguous. My guess is

(11+56) / (2•7)

67/9

7.44

• Is this a trick question? Uh pre-algebra was different for me but anyways uhhh

PEMDAS= 1.Parenthesis (if I spelled it right) 2. Exponents 3.Multiplication 4. Division 5. Addition 6. Subtraction in order

Now there is parenthesis so (2x7)= 14 11+56 divided 14

Division is next on the list 56 divided by 14= 4 11+4

Well addition is last lol 11+4=15

Now that's how I learned it anyone else have another way or even a different answer?

Okay, so due to order of operations, (2x7) must be done first, so it's 11+56/14.

Next in line is division-56/14 is 4, and 11+4 equals

15.

On paper this would look like:

11+56/(2x7)

11+56/14

11+4

15

I believe this is the correct way to do it, just remember PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication/Division, Addition/Subtraction) for the order of operations. Good luck!
