How do you simplify #6^3 - 3 times (3^2 times 2) + 5# using order of operations?

1 Answer

Answer:

We can use the BODMAS rule to solve this.

#167#

Explanation:

The order of operations is given by the BODMAS rule. B=Brackets; O=Of; D=Division; M=Multiplication; A=Addition; S=Subtraction. B i.e. brackets have highest priority and the priority decreases till S i.e. subtraction.

#6^3-3*(3^2*2)+5#

= #6*6*6-3*(9*2)+5)#

= #216-3*(18)+5#

= #216-54+5#

= #216+5-54#

= #221-54#

= #167#
