Answer:

Use BIDMAS!

Explanation:

  • Brackets
  • Indicies
  • Division
  • Multiplication
  • Addition
  • Subtraction

So away to figure out the question is to follow the rule of BIDMAS!

The question is:

#(3xx6)-5#

Since #3xx6# equals #18#, you would write

#=18-5#

Then #18-5# equals #13#, so you would write

#= 13#

There you go. The answer to that question is #13#.
