You perform the order of operations First: You solve the parenthesis first which equals: 26-7 8 / 4 +7. Next: You work your problem starting from the left as required in math: 7 x 8 = 56 therefore the problem is now 26 - 56 / 4 +7. Second: 56 / 4 = 14 the problem is now 26 - 14 +7 Third: 26 - 14 = 12... show more You perform the order of operations


First: You solve the parenthesis first which equals: 26-7 8 / 4 +7.


Next: You work your problem starting from the left as required in math:
7 x 8 = 56 therefore the problem is now 26 - 56 / 4 +7.


Second: 56 / 4 = 14 the problem is now 26 - 14 +7


Third: 26 - 14 = 12 the problem is now 12 + 7 = 19


The answer is 19
