Confusion?

Post  CrAyaan on Sun Oct 10, 2010 2:16 am

I'm confused.. Didn't you just give us the answer? I went over it several times but i don't see the need to insert brackets. Do we have to add brackets or is this a mistake?

Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong as well.. But still.

If we apply BODMAS we get 66-6+6=66 right?
