Follow PEMDAS. Multiply first. Then subtract. 3 - 15 * 5 3 - 75 -72

$\frac{ -3^3 }{ -3^2 }$ Quotient of Powers: To divide powers with like bases, subtract the exponents. So you'd have: $-3^1 or -3$

But remember that multiplication and division BOTH have the same priority. And addition/subtraction also have the SAME priority. So what if you encounter an expression with both multiplication and division for example? In that case, you would go from left to right.
