95/3= 31.6667

31.6667+23=54.6667

54.6667-5=49.6667

No! You are ignoring order of operations!

The original expression is:

$$95/3+23-5*34$$

93 is not divisible by three, so we'll leave it for now, but 5*34 can be simplified:

$$\frac{95}{3}+23-5*34$$

$$\frac{95}{3}+23-170$$

Now convert the constants to numbers divided by three:

$$\frac{95}{3}+\frac{23*3}{3}-\frac{170*3}{3}$$

$$\frac{95}{3}+\frac{69}{3}-\frac{510}{3}$$

$$-\frac{346}{3}=-115.333...$$

Ignoring order of operations makes a big difference...
