    just plug into your calculator. much easier, just make sure to include the parenthesees. (sorry spelling) but if you cant then just remember Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally (order of operations) that stands for paranthesees (sp sorry), exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. hope this might help?
