2[1/4 + 4(36 divided by 12)]
its 2 to the 3rd power. How do you solve this?

The "deepest" parentheses are "(36 divided by 12)" which is 3 soDnichol016 said:2[1/4 + 4(36 divided by 12)]

Yes it’s in my grandsons homeworkMarkFL said:Hello, and welcome to MHB! :)
As written, the expression evaluates to:
\(\displaystyle \frac{49}{2}\)

Parentheses and brackets are both symbols used in mathematical expressions to indicate the order of operations. Parentheses are typically used to group terms together and indicate that those terms should be evaluated first. Brackets are used to enclose terms or expressions that need to be evaluated as a single unit.
When evaluating an expression with both parentheses and brackets, first simplify the expression inside the parentheses, then simplify the expression inside the brackets. Finally, use the order of operations to evaluate the remaining terms in the expression.
The order of operations when evaluating an expression with parentheses and brackets is to first simplify the expression inside the parentheses, then simplify the expression inside the brackets. Finally, use the order of operations to evaluate the remaining terms in the expression.
No, parentheses and brackets cannot be used interchangeably in an expression. They have different meanings and serve different purposes in mathematical expressions. Using the wrong symbol can result in an incorrect answer.
To solve an expression with exponents and fractions, first simplify the fraction by finding the common denominator. Then, use the exponent rules to simplify the expression. Finally, use the order of operations to evaluate the remaining terms in the expression.
