# $$2(5+3 \times \sqrt{25}) \div(14-9) \times 4=?$$

32

Explanation

First perform the operation inside parentheses, doing multiplication before addition: $$5+3 \times \sqrt{25}=5+3 \times 5=5+15=20$$ and 14 – 9 = 5. This gives $$2(5+3 \times \sqrt{25}) \div(14-9) \times 4=2(20) \div 5 \times 4$$. Now do the multiplications and divisions from left to right: $$2(20) \div 5 \times 4=40 \div 5 \times 4=8 \times 4=32$$
