    multiply, add, and subtraction

    -3.4*(-1.4) - (-7.6) + 0.062 =



    This is what I came up with, am I right?

    4.76 + 7.6 + 0.062 = 12.422

    Wink Yes

    To be more confident next time, remember "BODMAS" for your order of operations

    B = Brackets
    O = Orders (sqrt, power, etc)
    D = Division
    M = Multiplication
    A = Addition
    S = Subtraction

    In other words, you should work on brackets first, and then on orders, and then on division, and then on multiplication, and finally on addition and subtraction.
