How was it? Take your time and concentrate!
Remember the order of operations. What part should you solve first?
Think about it carefully so you answer correctly!
Below the next picture, you will find the correct answer.
Here is the solution
The correct answer is 11.
How do we know that 11 is the right answer?
To begin with, we need to solve the part inside the parenthesis, 12 ÷ 4 + 1, which equals 4.
After that, the problem looks like this: 15 – 1 x 4. So the next step is to calculate the multiplication, which equals 4.
So the problem now is 15 – 4, which totals 11.
The answer is then 11.
