Answer:

#(6xx8)div4=48div4=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 #6xx8div4=(6xx8)div4=48div4=12#.
