# How do you evaluate 3[ 6+ 4( 4+ 7) ]?

Jun 1, 2018

$150$

#### Explanation:

$3 \left[6 + 4 \left(4 + 7\right)\right]$

To simplify this, I'm going to use this order of operations called PEMDAS:

Following this image, we know that the first thing we have to simplify is the stuff inside a parenthesis/bracket. We also go from inside to outside, so we simplify $4 + 7$ first:

$3 \left[6 + 4 \left(11\right)\right]$

Now multiplication:
$3 \left[6 + 44\right]$

Add $6 + 44$:
$3 \left[50\right]$

Multiply:
$150$

Hope this helps!
