Even if it seemed like work back then, doing a middle school math question merely to train your brain is now a lot of fun.
It’s not simply a practice in memorizing how to solve the problem; it’s also a test of your logical reasoning abilities. It may seem tough at first to train that area of your brain, but much like going to the gym, this mental workout will leave you feeling much better.
So which solution do you think is correct? A, B, or C?
re you able to fix the problem? Here’s a nudge in the right direction.
The sequence in which you obtain the solution is critical. Only scroll below if you’re looking for the answer.
Don’t forget about PEMDAS’ pneumonic device.
To begin, you must answer the issue in the parenthesis: (2 + 1) = 3.
Then you must proceed to multiplication, which in this case is 7 x 3 = 21.
You may now proceed to the addition section of the problem: 5 + 21 = 26.
Option B: 26 is the correct answer.
