# Please help brain fam!Which expression has the value of 2/3A. [8 + (24 ÷ 12)] x 4B. (8 + 24) ÷ (12 x 4)C. 8 + (24 ÷ 12) x 4D. 8 + 24 ÷ 12 x 4Thanks!

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:B.(8 + 24) ÷ (12 x 4)Step-by-step explanation:We are going to solve simplify all the option to get the value of each option.But to solve this expression, we need to be conversant with BODMAS ruleB stands for bracketO stands for orderD stands for divisionM stands for multiplicationA stands for additionS stands for SubtractionWhat the BODMAS rule is simply saying is that when you have an expression that involves any of the; bracket, powers, division, multiplication ,addition and subtraction, the first thing to do is to solve what is in the bracket, then you can now work on the powers (if there is any) and then you move to the division (if there is any) and then you multiply and finally you add or subtract.Haven gotten the above explanation, lets solve for option A [8 + (24 ÷ 12)] x 4 [8 + (2)] x 410 x 440Option A is not the answerLets move to option B(8 + 24) ÷ (12 x 4)
32 ÷ 4832/48 can be reduced to become 2/3 (16 can divide 32 to give us 2 and 16 can divide 48 to give us 3)Option B gives 2/3. Option B is the answerLets check for option C 8 + (24 ÷ 12) x 48 + 2 x 48 + 816Option C is not the answerLets check option D8 + 24 ÷ 12 x 48 + 2 x 48+816Option D is not the answerTherefore option B is the only answer that will give us 2/3
