# How do you simplify [(6+7) + 3²] times (4÷ 8)  using PEMDAS?

Feb 25, 2016

$11$

#### Explanation:

Order of operations - always do brackets first, then multiply and divide, then add and subtract.

$\therefore \left[\left(6 + 7\right) + {3}^{2}\right] \times \left(4 \div 8\right) = \left(13 + 9\right) \times \frac{1}{2}$

$= 22 \times \frac{1}{2}$

$= 11$
