## anonymous one year ago Where do i start? Show how to apply the order of operation rules as you simplify the following expression. |-5| – 45 ÷ 3

HI!!

2. misty1212

start by writing $5-45\div 3$ since $$|-5|=5$$

3. misty1212

then divide then subtract

4. anonymous

45/3= 15 -5 =10?

5. johnweldon1993

Not quite.. $\large 5 - 45 \div 3$ $\large 5 - (\frac{45}{3})$ $\large 5 - 15 = ?$

6. anonymous

10?

7. johnweldon1993

15 is bigger than 5...so subtracting 15 from 5 would give us a "negative" number right?

8. anonymous

Yeah DX Forgot about that, it's 20

9. anonymous

-10 >~<
