    Remeber, the mnemonic PEMDAS tells us the order of operations in arithmetic. We evaluate expressions in the following order:

    Parenthesis
    Exponents
    Multiplication
    Division
    Addition
    Subtraction

    i don't know what to tell you there. i guess you can mark it, but make a note that the answer is 58, or bring your professor's attention to it

    does the question look as how i typed it?
