# How do you simplify 2+6(8) div4 using PEMDAS?

Jun 26, 2016

Begin with the number in parenthesis

#### Explanation:

Begin with Parenthesis and Division

(8) is in parenthesis, multiply (8) by 6

$\left(8\right) \cdot 6 = 48$

We now have $2 + 48 \div 4$

Next is division, divide 48 by 4

$48 \div 4 = 12$

We now have 2+12

$12 + 2 = 14$
$2 + 6 \left(8\right) \div 4 = 2 + 48 \div 4 = 2 + 12 = 14$
