Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiplication doesn't come before Division, they're on the same level. When dealing with a problem like this, I think you're suppose to go from lefttoright if you have multiplication and division. I think you would do the 36/6 first.

So problems are usually easier to read when written as fractions D:
