# How do you evaluate the expression -220 - 16 times32 ?

$- 732$

#### Explanation:

As PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction) says, multiplication takes precedence over subtraction.

We can do $- 16 \cdot 32$ first to now get

$- 220 - 512$

Now we can do our subtraction to get

$- 732$
