In maths there are several operations such as addition,subtraction,multiplication,division.

When we do maths operations there is a sequence we have to follow.

  • First we need to solve the brackets if any.
  • Then we have to do the multiplication and division
  • Finally addition and substation

 

Now lets move on to your question.

2*(7+4)/2

Now first we have to solve the bracket.

(7+4) = 11

Now the question become;

2*11/2

Now we have to do the multiplication and division. you can do either one first.

I will do the multiplication first.

2*11 = 22

Now we have 22/2

22/2 = 11

 

So the answer is 11.

`(2*(7+4))/2 = 11`
