The expression can be written as $\left(2697+29+2+1\right)$ and total number of people who registered for the twin convention is $2729$

See the step by step solution

## Step-1 – Order of operations

To evaluate any expression involving more than one operation, follow the below order of operations:

• First evaluate expressions inside grouping symbols like parentheses ( ) or brackets [ ].
• Evaluate the exponents.
• Perform Multiplication and division from left to right.
• Perform addition and subtraction from left to right.

## Step-2 – Given

Consider, the table provided in the question,

Number of sets of twins is 2697

Number of sets of triplets is 29

Number of sets of quadruplets is 2

Number of sets of quintuplets is 1

## Step-3 – Calculation

The expression to evaluate the total number of people who registered for the twin convention can be written as:

$\left(2697+29+2+1\right)$

Now, evaluate the above expression, $\left(2697+29+2+1\right)=2729$
