Answer:

The answer is #50/3#, or #16.6666666667#.

Explanation:

#[32 + (8-2) * 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.

#[32 + (6) * 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."

#[32 + (24) -6]/3#

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

#(56 -6)/3#

#50/3#

So, #[32 + (8-2) * 4 - 6]/3 = 50/3.#

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

#50/3#

#=16.6666666667#
