#### 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.

$\textcolor{red}{8 \div 4} \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 1 \left(6 - 4\right)} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{+ 4 \div 2} \textcolor{g r e e n}{- 6}$

= $\textcolor{red}{2} \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 1 \times 2} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{+ 2} \textcolor{g r e e n}{- 6}$

= $\textcolor{red}{2} \textcolor{b l u e}{+ 2} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{+ 2} \textcolor{g r e e n}{- 6}$
