What grade are you in?

- TheSmartOne

This stuff is basic things taught in elementary school...

- TheSmartOne

We have to simplify parentheses first from left to right. Then we move on to exponenets from left to right. And then multiplication and division from left to right. And finally addition and subtraction from right to left.
If it doesn't have one of them, then we skip that step and move on.

One way to remember PEMDAS|dw:1433953543671:dw|

- anonymous

You can start with finding the absolute value |-8| which is 8. Than add -3 to 8. After that divide 12/3. Than multiply what you got.

- anonymous

Can you do that?

- LeAnn01Xxx

- anonymous

Okay its either A or B obviously, and im thinking its A.

- texaschic101

12/3 * -3 + |-8|
do absolute value first
12/3 * -3 + 8
now do division
4 * -3 + 8
now do multiplication
-12 + 8
now do addition
-4

- anonymous

sorry I got that drawing wrong

- TheSmartOne

@LeAnn01Xxx You aren't going to learn anything just by guessing.

- TheSmartOne

So we now know it's not C. Well maybe it's D.

- LeAnn01Xxx

Im not guessing. -.- excuse me for not being taught properly.

In Math there is no such thing as thinking. It either is or it isn't.
