Evaluate mp + 6 given m = 4 and p = 4.

Question:

Evaluate {eq}mp + 6 {/eq} given {eq}m = 4 {/eq} and {eq}p = 4 {/eq}.

EMDAS:

In the order of mathematical operations, the first one is doing the exponents, then multiplication and division then addition and subtraction. In evaluating simple algebraic expressions, the order of mathematical operations have to be followed.

Answer and Explanation:

Evaluating the equation below with m = 4 and p = 4:

{eq}mp + 6 \\ = (4)(4) + 6 \\ = 16 +6 \\ = 22 {/eq}

The expression {eq}mp + 6 {/eq} after being evaluated is equal to {eq}22 {/eq}.
