Hi,

The way the formula is written is a bit confusing and can have several interpretations. You need to place brackets in the appropriate locations so the operations can be clearly identified.

Also it would help if you can tells what is this formula is for

this does not help me much because putting in the brackets is what confuses me? its for germination speed
Expert:  John D replied 4 years ago.

Ok in that case we will use the conventional order of operations, or precedence that is referred to as 'PEMDAS' which is in this order

1- inside parentheses or brackets
2- exponents and roots
3- multiplication and division as they appear left to right
4- addition and subtraction as they appear left to right

Would that be ok?
