Answer:

#0#

Explanation:

Count the number of terms first. In this case there are 4 terms.

You can simplify within each term until there is a single answer for each term. Do more than one simplification in a line. This saves time and space.

Addition and subtraction are done in the LAST step.

#color(red)(8div4)color(blue)(+1(6-4))color(magenta)(+4div2)color(green)(-6)#

= #color(red)(2)color(blue)(+1xx2)color(magenta)(+2)color(green)(-6)#

= #color(red)(2)color(blue)(+2)color(magenta)(+2)color(green)(-6)#

=#0#
