I'm not the best at Algebra!

The quiz says to simplify:

4[11 − (55 − 3 to the 5th power) 3]

Sorry, can't figure out how to type powers on my keyboard

4(11-(55-3^5)/3)
4(11-(55-243)/3)
4(11-(-188)/3)
4(11-(-62.66))
4(11+62.66)
4*73.66
294.66

I think I might have gone wrong somewhere....

Why does my son have to be smart!!

Ama! Thanks for the help.

I actually found and signed up for a site that helps you figure out math problems... wasn't cheap either...

It's either that or the kid will have to keep asking the teacher!

Your answer was different from the math site but the same none the less...

I guess there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Wait, was I right or wrong? When you say my answer was different, do you mean my final answer or my method of getting there?

Your answer was right, your method for solving was different.
