95/3= 31.6667

31.6667+23=54.6667

54.6667-5=49.6667

49.6667*34=1688.6667<--- Final answer

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...
