    The next step in simplifying this expression is to divide 40 by 4.

    alright so it is 40/4(3)^3 right?

    Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication or Division, Addition or Subtraction.

    so the first thing you do is parenthesis after that is exponents

    there's not much to do with parenthesis, so we move onto exponents 3^3 = ???

    The problem asks me if dividing 40 by 4 the next step.

    The next step in simplifying this expression is to divide 40 by 4. True, or False?

    It's False, right?

    correct its false due to PEMDAS

    well if you follow PEMDAS explicitly, then P comes first. P for parenthesis. There's nothing to do with parenthesis E comes next, E for exponents. We compute 3^3 to get 27 so the next step should be turning 3^3 into 27. The division part comes later
