What's the answer and how do you solve it

1 Answer

  • -5 + [2 - (4 * (-3) + 6)] / 2

    First off, we must remember PEMDAS or

    "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction"

    So we start with parentheses first.
    But for the problem (4 * (-3) + 6) , there is two answers depending on which way you solve it! So what do you do? Remember in math, it is always left to right.
    so- (4 * (-3) + 6) = (-12 + 6) = -6.
    Now the equation looks like this: -5 + [2 - (-6)] / 2

    2 - (-6) = 8

    Now the equation looks like this: -5 + (8) / 2
    Going left to right we can finally solve.
    -5 + 8 = 3

    3/2 = 1.5

    Answer is 1.5!
