# How do you simplify (-2-2(4)(-3)+(3)^2)/(4-(-6)(-3)) using PEMDAS?

$\frac{31}{- 14}$

#### Explanation:

Although this is all one term, there are different terms in the numerator and denominator.

We can do several calculations at a time, as long as we leave the plus and minus operations until last.

$\frac{- 2 - \textcolor{red}{2 \left(4\right) \left(- 3\right)} + \textcolor{b l u e}{{\left(3\right)}^{2}}}{4 \textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{- \left(- 6\right) \left(- 3\right)}}$

(-2-(color(red)(-24))+color(blue)(9))/(4color(orange)(-(+18))

(-2 +color(red)24+color(blue)(9))/(4 color(orange)(-18)

$\frac{31}{- 14}$
