formula help

[closing costs] - 400/2

Closing costs -(minus) 400/ (divided)2

Example: Closing costs 1950.00 -400= 1550/ 2 = 775 But I am getting the wrong calculation - it is coming out at 1750.00

• ..so in math, there something called the order of operations.  I think probably way back in grade 5 or something like that I'm nerdy enough to still remember my teacher telling me BOMDAS

That stands for

Brackets

Of (as in 5% of x)

MD (Multiplication and Division)

BOMDAS

That means that in the absence of any Brackets, it will always do the Multiplication and Division first and then do the Addition and Subtraction next.

([closing costs] - 400) / 2

Other words take the closing costs, subtract 400,  and then take the result of that,  divided in half
