I have to answer a skill testing question to apply for a beer birthday party online and I don't want to give the wrong answer. I've been out of school too long and may not be doing it correctly.

The question is 130/10X11+158-27=

I have either 274 or 132.18 but I may be wrong on both answers. Please help?

130 / (10x11) + 158-27 =

130/ 110 + 131 =

13/11 + 131 = 132.18ish

which is what you don't wanna do...

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally...crap

Yeah, the answer's 274 due to the properties of mathematics, or some phlem like that.

If X = a multiplication symbol.....

130/10X11+158-27=

13*11+158-27=

143+158-27=

201-27=

130/10X11+158-27=

13*11+158-27=

143+158-27=

201-27=

**174**

If X = a multiplication symbol.....

130/10X11+158-27=

13*11+158-27=

143+158-27=

201-27=174

That doesn't make any sense

#11

divide by zero. (kills thread)

#12

If X = a multiplication symbol.....

130/10X11+158-27=

13*11+158-27=143+158-27=

201-27=174

incorrect math silly billy

#13

130/10X11+158-27

13X11+158-27

143+158-27

301-27

274

I'm high and I won the prize cause I did right k?

13X11+158-27

143+158-27

301-27

274

I'm high and I won the prize cause I did right k?

So I'll go with 274 which was my initial thought. Thanks guys

#15

since there are no parenthesis() you go from left to right, so:

130/10=13

13x11=143

143+158=301

301-27= 274

130/10=13

13x11=143

143+158=301

301-27= 274
