Is the value of x = 4/3?
If so, then substitute the (4/3) into the expression and evaluate.
18(4/3) - 3
18 times (4/3) minus 3
Order of operations: parentheses, exponents, multiplication/division, addition/subtraction
Multiplication/division before addition/subtraction.
So 18 times (4/3) means 18 times 4, divided by 3 which is
(72/3) - 3
24 - 3
