2*4*5/5(2+2)

2*4*5/5(4)

2*4*4

another way

2*4*5/5(2+2)

2*4*5/5(4)

40/5 * 4

8*4

With multiplication and division go left to right after the addition.

If 5 was to be multiplied by (2*2) in the denominator it would be written

2*4*5/[5(2+2)]

2*4* (5/5) *4 is the correct understanding

8*4 = 32

===

You would need to put the other in brackets to get another answer:

2*4*5/[5(2+2)] = 2

BUT THIS IS NOT your question!
