# Math Help - What comes first?

1. ## What comes first?

I have to evaluate this expression:

C-2(DE)^T

I have all of the matrixes needed. After evaluating DE, would I do the transpose of DE next, or multiply DE by scalar 2?

2. ## Re: What comes first?

$(2DE)^T = 2((DE)^T)$, so you needn't worry.
