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

Apr 25, 2018

$= 126$

#### Explanation:

$\left(6 + {6}^{2}\right) \times 3$

$= \left(6 + 36\right) \times 3$

$= \left(42\right) \times 3$

$= 126$

BEDMAS. Brackets go first, which is $6 + {6}^{2}$. Inside the brackets, exponents go next, which turns the ${6}^{2}$ to a $36$, which gives you $\left(6 + 36\right)$.

Then, to finalize the brackets, add them together. Then all you have left is $42$ multiplied by $3$, which gives you $126$.
