# How do you evaluate 6*(11-6)-:2?

Sep 12, 2016

$15$

#### Explanation:

$6 \times \textcolor{red}{\left(11 - 6\right)} \div 2$ is all one term, but work out the bracket first.

$6 \times 5 \div 2 \text{ }$ which can also be written as $\frac{6 \times 5}{2}$

= $30 \div 2 = 15$

OR

$3 \times 5 = 15$

OR

$6 \times 2 \frac{1}{2} = 15$
