# How do you simplify 5-6 times 9 div 7 / 3 using PEMDAS?

Apr 9, 2018

#### Explanation:

According to PEMDAS, Parentheses should go first, followed by exponents, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Since there isn't parentheses, nor exponents, multiplication will go first.
If so, then the equation will look like this:
$5 - 54 \div \frac{7}{3}$
Division should be next. If so, it could be this:
$5 - 54 \div 2$
Divide again, and it's now like this:
$5 - 27$
Since there is no addition, you subtract.
Hope this helped!
