Oct 15, 2017

The answer is $\frac{50}{3}$, or $16.6666666667$.

#### Explanation:

$\frac{32 + \left(8 - 2\right) \cdot 4 - 6}{3}$

We need to solve the top side first. Since PEMDAS starts with P, which stands for "Parentheses," we'll solve the parentheses first.

$\frac{32 + \left(6\right) \cdot 4 - 6}{3}$

The E in PEMDAS stands for "Exponent." Since there are no exponents to solve in this equation, we will skip to the M, which stands for "Multiplication."

$\frac{32 + \left(24\right) - 6}{3}$

Next, we will to Addition (A) and Subtraction (S) from left to right.

$\frac{56 - 6}{3}$

$\frac{50}{3}$

So, $\frac{32 + \left(8 - 2\right) \cdot 4 - 6}{3} = \frac{50}{3.}$

If you want to convert it to a decimal, divide $50$ by $3.$

$\frac{50}{3}$

$= 16.6666666667$
