8divide by 2(2+2)

Dear student,The question states "8 divided by 2(2+2)"If we follow the standard VBODMASrule and calculate, we will get8÷2(2+2)=8÷2×(2+2)=8÷2×4=4×4 (since we have to divide before multiplication)=16, which is the correct answer.But, if the expression "8 divided by 2(2+2)" states as following:82(2+2)=82×4=88=1 , which is the correct answer of this different representation of the same problem.Regards!
