Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

To simplify this expression, we need to use a process called the Order of Operations.

This is more commonly known as #PEMDAS#, an acronym to describe the necessary steps (in order) of solving such an expression:

#P# - Parenthesis

#E# - Exponents

#MD# - Multiply/Divide (Left to right)

#AS# - Add/Subtract (Left to right)

Knowing this, we can being to simplify:

#(3^4divide9)+32-(5times10)+6#

#=(81divide9)+32-(5times10)+6#

#=(9)+32-(50)+6#

#=41-(50)+6#

#=-9+6#

#=-3#
