# How do you evaluate 6times8div4?

Dec 20, 2016

$\left(6 \times 8\right) \div 4 = 48 \div 4 = 12$.

#### Explanation:

The standard convention is that multiplication and division have the same importance, so when deciding which to do first in a situation like this, we just evaluate left to right.

Going left to right, we'll first do the multiplication in this case. So we have $6 \times 8 \div 4 = \left(6 \times 8\right) \div 4 = 48 \div 4 = 12$.
