How do you simplify #-4(3+3)#?

1 Answer

Answer:

Use PEMDAS to determine the order to do things and arrive at #-24#

Explanation:

To solve this, we'll use PEMDAS. P stands for Parentheses (or brackets as I like to call them), so we'll work the addition inside them first, then do the multiplication.

Starting with the original:

#-4(3+3)#

and now working the addition within the brackets:

#-4(6)#

and now the multiplication:

#-24#
