# How do you simplify 3+(6 times 2) using order of operations?

Nov 22, 2015

See explanation

#### Explanation:

Multiply and divide have priority over add and subtract. Then work from the left to right. (I think!)

So step 1 is$\text{ } 6 \times 2 = 12$

Step 2 is$\text{ } 3 + 12 = 15$

If I am wrong sure some one will correct it!!!
