You can get so many different combination of formulas. On the other hand...if you writing on paper and its something like x-2 then you assume parenthesis there. But if it's being divided and you have this: x/3-y it's the same thing as (x/3) - y (following the little rule of order). You can't just assume it's x / (3-y). __________________

But lets see what people get. Theres suppose to be 2 numbers, but ignore the negative number outcome. Answer should be..... 10 EDIT - doesnt seem like it comes out right...
