I can't remember the steps to working an algebra problem like this. Thanks

I use PEMDAS when I'm trying to remember the steps you take to solve an algebraic equation, i.e., the order of operations . You solve in this order:

P: parentheses (work inside the parentheses first)

E: exponents (then apply the exponents)

M/D: multiplication/division comes next

A/S: addition/subtraction come last
