Begin by inserting the values for x and y then solve.

(-5-4x6)*3

Are you familiar with the rules of the order in which to solve?

Just remember- Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally

p- parenthesis

E-exponent

M- multiplication

D- division

A- addition

S-subtraction

so start with the parenthesis

(-5-4 x 6)

within are multiplication and a subtraction.... which comes first?

(-5 - 4 x 6) the *-multiplication

(-5 - 24)

now the subtraction

if you are 5 negative of 0 and you take away another 24 what value results?

(-29)

don't forget the exponent- it would be wise to write it in all of steps

(-29)^3 = -29 x -29 x -29

the odd number exponent means a negative base will result in a negative answer

raise -29 to the third power (-29 cubed)

and you have your answer

-24389= (-5 - 4 x 6)^3

check this by removing on of the variable ( x or y) and solve for that variable. If your answer natches the value given in the problem you got it right
