Order of operations. Simplify. 3 (6-3) -2^3
1. groupings 2. multiplication or division from left to right 3. addition or subtraction from left to right
To evaluate, we use PEMDAS: Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction 3 (6-3) -2^3 ... Start with the given expression 3 (3) -2^3 .. Deal with the parenthesis first: subtract 6-3 to get 3 3 (3) - 8 .. Cube 2 to get 8 9 - 8 .. Multiply 1 ... Subtract So 3 (6-3) -2^3 = 1
did I make a typo?
no, i just find the concept of teaching extra information to remember as a means to remember what needs to remembered rather .... wasteful, but its just my opinion
the first thing you do is subtract; or the first thing you do is distribute thru the (..), or the first thing you do is the exponent .... kinda alot of first thing options
well some find it helpful, so whatever works I guess
