Question: Hi Arias, The convention for the order of operations when evaluating arithmetic expressions is
Hence in your expression perform the divisions first then the multiplication, that is find ^{8}/_{13} and ^{26}/_{27} and then multiply them together. Hence, since 26 = 2 x 13, you get A mathematician would never write 8/13*26/27. I would write (8/13)*(26/27) so that it is clear which operation to perform first. Penny
