198/27+6(2+8(1-2)+(11-3)+5)/2=28

How and why?

This is false

 

\(\frac{198}{27}+\frac{6(2+8(1-2)+(11-3)+5)}{2}\)

\(\)\(=\frac{198}{27}+\frac{6\cdot(2+8\cdot-1+8+5)}{2}\)

\(=\frac{198}{27}+\frac{6\cdot7}{2}\)

\(=\frac{22}{3}+\frac{6\cdot7}{2}\)

\(=\frac{22}{3}+\frac{42}{2}\)

\(=\frac{85}{3}\)

\(=28 \frac{1}{3}\)

 

Hope this helped! smiley

Hmm.. Maybe they just rounded it? Or you typed in the question wrong?

 

According to Wolframalpha, it's 28 1/3, and when I solved it I got the same thing.

Hi tacobell, I think that Violynx is correct.
