Is there any reason why this number phrase is not working on game #1373990 ? The existing numbers are: 8 7x9 I want to add a minus between 7 and 8 and 55 after the equal sign. It seems that should add up right. It's not accepting it. Am I missing something?

8-7*9 = 55?

Rule: Sums are read from left to right or from top to bottom.

Oh really? I was thinking in a situation like that they would do the division first and then the subtraction, no? Isn't there a math rule that says you do all division and multiplication first and then addition and subtraction? I thought that's the way it's worked in the past on here. But I'll take your word for it and move on. Thanks for replying in a timely manner. I didn't want to send the game till I heard something. Thanks again. Barb

ok, now this won't work: 8-7x9=9 It's the same numbers as before but I tried left to right, as you suggested, and it doesn't work. I'm still missing something. Any other suggestions?

8-7x9= -55 The game rules says:

The standard order of operations apply, see Wikipedia. Multiplication and division precede addition and subtraction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operations

That's what thought as well. See first post in this thread. Any other suggestions. The game is still waiting. I can pass but want to be such it's not a bug.

You did not read my answer well.
8-7x9 is not 55 but -55, (minus 55) according to my calculator. Negative numbers are not allowed.
