    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.

    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.

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

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @LeAnn01Xxx Okay its either A or B obviously, and im thinking its A. \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) In Math there is no such thing as thinking. It either is or it isn't.
