How do you use PEMDAS to simplify #3times4^2+5-1#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#52#

Explanation:

PEMDAS is Parentheses - Exponents - Multiplication/Division - Addition/Subtraction.

First, you would do exponents, since there are no parentheses. #4^2# is #16#. Next, you would do Multiplication/Division.

#3*16=48#

Next, you would do Addition/Subtraction,

#48+5-1=52#

So

#4^2=16#

#3*16=48#

#48+5-1=52#
