Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So here's the initial problem: \[(9(1)) \div (3/2) \div [(1)^{(11)\times(3)}+(1/2)]\] You need to do anything in parenthesis first so do (11)*(3) in the exponent first: \[(8) \div (3/2) \div [(1)^{33}+(1/2)]\] Now you need to do the exponents next so calculate (1)^33: \[(8) \div (3/2) \div [1+(1/2)]\] Now we go back to doing what's in parenthesis so do 1+(1/2): \[(8) \div (3/2) \div (1/2)\] Now we can divide, but dividing a fraction is the same as multiplying its inverse, so we get: \[(8) \times (2/3) \times (2)\] Then just multiply 8 * (2/3) and multiply that number by 2 and you get your answer: \[(16/3) \times (2) = (32/3)\] Final answer: (32/3)
