 Within the brackets do the multiplication of adjacent before the sums, then do the division of that sum. That gives you the first term of the left hand side. For the next term on the left hand side do the multiplication first and then do the sum of the two terms. The rules of arithmetic have defeated many a student, and professor, in much higher math. An algebra text will cover the rules Sent from my iPad > On Feb 20, 2019, at 9:32 AM, Ken Armstrong <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > > Count me among the confused. It's been over 50 years since I've done anything at all with equations, but isn't something amiss in the setup here? In order to get 26 on the left side of the equation before adding it to 55, you have to know that you do not add the 3 to the preceding numbers before multiplying it times the square root of 4. Another set of parentheses is needed around the 3 X sq. rt.4? Or maybe removing the X between 3 and the sq rt of 4? > > >> On 2/20/2019 10:28 AM, Richard Seddon wrote: >> >> For those confused by Rick’s poetry it is a play on the rules of arithmetics.
