## anonymous 4 years ago Simplify: (9 – 8)2 × (24 – 6 divided by 3)

1. anonymous

I think the answer's 6 not sure

2. sasogeek

(9-8)=? multiply the answer by 2 24-6= ? divide the answer by 3 multiply the two answers...

3. anonymous

I got 6 as my final answer by using PEMDAS (order of operations)

4. sasogeek

just in case you're not sure, the answer is not 6. but this might help. 9-8=1 24-6=18 can you do the rest? (1*2) * (18/3) = what you're looking for

5. anonymous

yea

6. anonymous

thanks

7. sasogeek

is the 24-6 divided 3 the same as this $$\large 24-6 \div 3$$ ------ 1 OR this $$\huge \frac{24-6}{3}$$ ----------- 2 ?

8. anonymous

first one

9. anonymous

I think I got it.............answer is 22

10. anonymous

i found my mistake..................I subtracted before i divided ( I'm supposed to do the reverse)

11. sasogeek

ok then my mistake, (9-8)*2 = ? 6/3= ? subtract your answer from 24 multiply the two answers

12. sasogeek

yes :)
