    You need to use grouping symbols, such as ( ), [ ] etc.

    You would type it as ( 6 + 3 • 2 ) / ( 3 • 4 - 10 ).

    When there are no grouping symbols simplify in the following order: 1. Do all multiplications and divisions in order from left to right. 2. Do all additions and subtractions in order from left to right.

    Note in this question the fraction bar / acts as a grouping symbol also because you simplify the numerator and denominator separately before dividing.
