#### Explanation:

Knowing $P E M D A S$, we have to start with the parenthesis, from left to right.

$40$ divided by $10$ is $4$, so our expression is so far:

4 ÷ (1xx4)

We know that $1 \times 4 = 4$, so the expression now turns into:

4 ÷ 4 = 1

Hope this helped!

#### Explanation:

There is only term, but several operations which we need to do.

Calculate the answer to each of the parentheses first and then divide them.

$\left(\textcolor{b l u e}{40 \div 10}\right) \div \textcolor{red}{\left(1 \times 4\right)}$

$= \textcolor{w h i t e}{x} \left(\textcolor{b l u e}{4}\right) \text{ " div" } \textcolor{red}{\left(4\right)}$

$= 4 \text{ "div" } 4$

$= 1$
