5! is 120: 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1, so that's correct.

multiplying comes first so 230-220*0.5= 230-110= 120. the person who told you it was five was probably messing with you cause youre gullible enough to go on here and ask lol :)

Let’s say we are given the following problem;
what is 150 - 6 ?
A normal person would 144
A knucklehead would say 12²
A lunatic may say 4!3!
In case of your problem whoever told you 230-220*0.5 is 5! maybe one of the above people.

It's all about BODMAS rule
Whoever told the answer is 5 ,didn't use the BODMAS rule
First multiply 220*0.5
Now subtract 110 from 230
Ans=120 which is also the final answer

5! = 5•4•3•2 = 120

Multiply is done before Subtraction
230 - 110 = 120

You "were told"? I "was told" "what is" followed by a "?" question mark is a common way to was "where is the bathroom" in airports.
And you can, apparently, write plain English? That mathematics you ask on is no more difficult to write than that the English you wrote in. And about the same level of expertise.
How did you write the English if you don't write in the mathematics. And who are you anyway? Why should you "be told" anything?
You a crude spy? You need the OSS, or maybe Kremlin informed on you? Rude nasty people like north Koreans and Iranians want to kill everybody with nuclear weapons.
That mathematics has meaning just like this does. YOUR question is business mathematics.
A->B-C:D is not business mathematics but engineering mathematics.
But is it true? Why haven't you answered?

230-220×0.5 = 230-110 = 120
5! = 1×2×3×4×5 = 120
