I'm assuming your problem looks like this: 4+5*6-3 =? To solve this problem you need to use the order of operations. PEMDAS which stands for Parentheses, exponents, multiply and divide, and lastly add and subtract. You must multiply and divide before you add and subtract so you must do 5*6 first. You now get 4+30-3. Now all you have left is addition and subtraction so you now just go from right to left and do one at a time. So 4+30 = 34 , 34-3=31. Therefore your answer should be 31. Hope that helped!
