Do you have a clear understanding of the modulo operator and order of operations?

Start from left to right, (*,/,%) has higher priority than (+,-) and if there were parentheses it will have higher priority and you have to do the math inside the parentheses before continuing to calculate something else.

that being said we have to calculate (8 * 7) first and then (8 % 5) and then (6 / 2) and then we add the results from left to right (8 * 7) + (8 % 5) + (6 / 2) 56 + 3 + 3 = 62
