If you had to choose between the ability to use the internet to find information or the ability to analyze and interpret information that is given to us, what would you pick? Most people would say the ability to use the internet to find information, but I on the other hand think that the ability to analyze and interpret information that is given to us is important because it’s better understood if we use our own ideas.

So you start to interrupt and analyze the information. While you doing that you remember about PEMDAS so you start to solve the math equation and come up with the answer 710,944. Might want to double check your answer to make sure it’s right so that’s what you do. If P stands for parenthesis you know that 6+389 is 395 and then you times that by 2 and get 790.
