Problem

8 x [ 6 + 4 x (2 + 12) + 8] 1 = _____

Procedure

Solve the inside group first:

8 x [ 6 + 4 x (2 + 12) + 8] 1 = 8 x [ 6 + 4 x 14 + 8] 1

Solve the outer group:

Multiplication followed by addition

8 x [ 6 + 4 x 14 + 8] 1 = 8 x [ 6 + 56 + 8] 1

8 x [ 6 + 56 + 8] 1 = 8 x 70 1

Finish the operation:

Multiplication followed by subtraction

8 x 70 1 = 559
Solution

8 x [ 6 + 4 x (2 + 12) + 8] 1 = 559
