Exercise #4

37(47)= 37-(4-7)=

Video Solution

Step-by-Step Solution

According to the order of operations, we first solve the exercise within parentheses:

47=3 4-7=-3

Now we obtain:

37(3)= 37-(-3)=

Remember that the product of a negative and a negative results in a positive, therefore:

(3)=+3 -(-3)=+3

Now we obtain:

37+3=40 37+3=40

Answer

40 40

Exercise #5

80(412)= 80-(4-12)=
