# How do you evaluate 5(14-39div3)+4*1/4?

Oct 22, 2017

$9 \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$

#### Explanation:

$5 \left(14 - \left(\frac{39}{3}\right)\right) + 4 \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$

$= 5 \left(14 - 13\right) + 4 + \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$

$= 5 + 4 + \left(\frac{1}{4}\right) = 9 + \left(\frac{1}{4}\right) = 9 \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$

$5 \left(14 - \frac{39}{3}\right) + 4 \cdot \frac{1}{4} = 6$

#### Explanation:

We need to evaluate what is inside the parenthesis first:

$5 \left(14 - \frac{39}{3}\right) + 4 \cdot \frac{1}{4} = 5 \left(14 - 13\right) + \left(4 \cdot \frac{1}{4}\right) = 5 \left(1\right) + 1 = 6$
