# How do you evaluate #(4+ 6) \times 3+ 7- 12\times 8=#?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

The evaluation of this expression begins with the rules for order of operations:

P - Parenthesis ( )

E - Exponents

M - Multiplication

D - Division

A - Addition

S - Subtraction

Moving left to right

Begin by evaluatiing the parenthesis

Now do the multiplication

Now add and subtract

The answer is -

See below.

#### Explanation:

**P** arentheses

**E** xponents

**M** ultiply

**D** ivide

**A** dd

**S** ubtract

Exponents: The number of times you multiply the number by itself, in

First you eliminate the parentheses by simplifying the expression between/in them.

Now, after eliminating the parentheses, the expression will be:

There are no exponents in this equation so we re going to skip that.

You will be multiplying twice in this equation.

You are going to replace each of them with their answer.

You are pretty much eliminating the multiplication signs by simplifying them by finding the products.

Now, after finding the products multiplication signs, the expression will be:

There is not going to be dividing in this expression. (there is no division sign)

Now you move on to the adding part.

There is only one addition sign.

Therefore, you add now!

You are pretty much eliminating the addition sign by simplifying it

.

Now, after eliminating the addition sign, the expression will be:

Lastly, you subtract! Since

Like if you have a loan of

(I just told you a way to think about it.)

Always remember the method, PEMDAS.

I hope that helps!
