None of my contacts are online and I'm stuck on the last problem of my homework. You will all laugh at me but I'm starting pre-algebra all over again because I slept through it in highschool or just didn't go so shut up and help me.

This is the problem : 29-{5+3[8(10-8)]-50}

And this is how I worked it out:
29-{5+3[8(10-8)]-50}
29-{5+3[8(2)]-50}
29-{5+3[16]-50}
29-{8[16]-50}
29-{128-50}
29-78
WHAT THE FUCK

Obviously I'm doing something wrong. We actually went over this in class* so I know the answer is 26. What did I do wrong?

*She just read the answers out, didn't solve them.

Quoted from Smokey:
29-{5+3[16]-50}
29-{8[16]-50}

You got your order of operators mixed up. It should be:

29-(5+3(16)-50)
29-(5+48-50)
29-(53-50)
29-3

Right, multiplication and division before addition and subtraction.

This is the part where I blush and pretend I never made this thread.

Thanks, man.

I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas. Well f you because he saved your ass from people like Sadam Houssein and don't go thinking i'm just a minupulated trailor trash illiterate for taking up for him because I'm smarter than 90% of the world.

Yeah but I can say "I slept through highschool" and my excuse is still better than yours. A week ago I didn't know how to do this at all, and didn't need to.

Put it in the R-HoF and pretend is was in OD.

Or move it to OD first THEN put it in the R-HoF.

It's HoF material, but it's pretty retarded.
