    Square Root Symbols in a Function

    Here's the formula... The answer should be 4, which should be W

    S=10
    T=5
    w=4

    w=33-(10 - 0.28 x S + square root of 28xS ) x ( 33 - T ) / 22.727

    so.. the square root symbol was over top of 28 and S just don't know how to put that symbol in here...

    so.. you work from left to right... and you do what's in the ( ) first.. .soo...

    10 - 0.28 = 9.72 x 10 (which is S) = 97.2

    then you add that to the sq root of 28x10 so.. 28x10= 280 the sqroot of that is.. 16.7332

    sooo.... 97.2 + 16.7332 = 113.9332

    then.... you do the other ( ) which is 33- 5 (T) = 28

    so.....

    113.9332 x 28 = 3190.1296

    then you do the rest...

    3190.1296 = 140.36738
    22.727

    W = 33 - 140.36738

    W = -107.36738

    The answer I keep getting is W = -107.36738

    what did I do wrong?
