Answer:

Follow the PEMDAS sequence.

Explanation:

Parentheses:
|2×(−2)|÷|4×[3×(−2)−1)]|
Exponents: (none)
Multiplication/Division: Apart from other parentheses, proceed from left to right in the expression, grouping the sections requiring absolute value of the result.
|(−4)|÷|4×[(−6)−1)]| ; |(−4)|÷|4×[(−7)]| ; |(−4)|÷|(−28)|
4÷28 = 0.143
