Since there are no parenthesis you have to go in a straight line, even though you put a space between the two supposed equations and the answer is 123.

The parenthesis are assumed by the hierarchy of mathematical function priority as follows:

1. powers / roots
2. multiplication / division

I hope that helps.

The presence or absence of parentheses is not an issue. Use a lifeline if you need to. You can call your brother Darrell or your other brother Darrell.

Actually you would have to know what the "X" represents in order to solve this equation.

If you had used a lower case "x" then one could assume that it meant to multiply.

Maybe you should try phoning a friend yourself. There is NEVER just one answer in mathematical equations, it depends entirely on how a problem is presented. You can be flip, sarcastic and rude all you like, but that fact doesn't change. You should have been taught that in the fourth grade assuming of course you went as far as the fourth grade.
