Solving the Expression (5/3  1) x (7/2  2)
This article will guide you through the steps of solving the mathematical expression (5/3  1) x (7/2  2). We will break down the problem and use the order of operations (PEMDAS/BODMAS) to arrive at the correct answer.
Understanding PEMDAS/BODMAS
PEMDAS/BODMAS is a mnemonic acronym that helps remember the order of operations in mathematics. It stands for:
Parentheses (or Brackets) Exponents (or Orders) Multiplication and Division (from left to right) Addition and Subtraction (from left to right)
Solving the Expression

Solve the expressions inside the parentheses:
 (5/3  1) = (5/3  3/3) = 2/3
 (7/2  2) = (7/2  4/2) = 3/2

Multiply the results from step 1:
 (2/3) x (3/2) = 6/6

Simplify the final answer:
 6/6 = 1
