    Default worksheet example is wrong

    6th grade math worksheet MA6_MA6243 hint section is wrong. The problem is 2(6-3)= (2x6) - (2x3)
    12-6= 18

    As you can see, the problem you have listed is incorrect. 12-6 = 6, not 18. This mistake had my son confused thinking he was doing something wrong.

    Just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

    Thank you, Jennifer

    Default Example is NOT incorrect!

    Actually you're incorrect. Order of Operations, you do (6-3) and THEN multiply by 2. So (6-3)=3 x2=6

    Please actually read my post before trying to say i am wrong. The answer on the worksheet said the answer was 18. As you just showed in your own math, the answer is actually 6. Which is what I said in my post.
