Jul 30, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

This is Division and Multiplication which are done in the same step, left to right.

Therefore, the first step is to do the division on the left:

$\frac{\textcolor{red}{45}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{3}} \left(- 5\right) \implies 15 \left(- 5\right)$

Next we can Multiply the result of the Division by the term within the parenthesis:

$\textcolor{red}{15} \left(\textcolor{b l u e}{- 5}\right) \implies - 75$
