Totally

Its unreal how surely the 9 folks believe they are correct.
Telling indeed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27256518


The 9 folks like me believe they are correct because they were taught that when there is a number before parenthesis it means to multiply.

In the real world people don't do that. When they want you to multiply they write out the times symbol.

I don't know what they taught you in Canada or Australia, but in America you do the math in parenthesis first, then the rest following order of operations.
