#### Answer:

14 !!

#### Explanation:

It could be written as

Just use the BODMAS principle giving more preference to division than to multiplication.

#### Answer:

14

#### Explanation:

Order of operations follows this order:

- **P** (Parentheses)

- **E** (Exponents)

- **MD** (Multiplication and Division - left to right)

- **AS** (Addition and Subtraction - left to right)

Or **PEMDAS** for short.

So when we see:

We know do the Parentheses first. So lets solve the part inside the parentheses:

There aren't any Exponents in this equation, so we can skip that part. But there is multiplication and division! So we will solve the those parts (don't forget: **Go left to right!** )
