    \(12 \div 3 \times [-8+(-4)^2-6]+2\) You need to use the order of operations. Many people remember it as PEMDAS P - parentheses E - exponents MD - multiplications and divisions in the order they appear from left to right AS - additions and subtractions in the order they appear from left to right

    You need to start in the parentheses, in this case, the square brackets. \(12 \div 3 \times \color{red}{[-8+(-4)^2-6]}+2\) First, do \((-4)^2\). Then do the rest of the operations in the square brackets. Then do the rest of the operations following the order of operations above.
