I thought you would do the parenthesis first leaving 15 between them, multiplied by 8 giving the value of 120, then taking 5 away you are left with 115, then dividing 6 by 2 is 3, adding 115 and 3 together gets 118 but it is wrong. I'm not sure how I'm messing up the order but any help would be appreciated

If you want this solved for you the lazy way, you can try typing in the equation into the REPL by typing csharp in the console with workspaces May have already known this but i guess it may help haha STAFF

It's not subtracting by 5 .,.. it's getting the mod of 120 and 5. So it looks like this.

8 x (7 + 8) % 5 + 6 /2 =

8 x 15 % 5 + 6/2 =

120 % 5 + 6/2 =

0 + 6 / 2 = because 120 divided by 5 has a remainder of 0 aka it's evenly divisible by 5

0 + 3 =

Happy coding!
