Mikaila is right.

So, 10/2 is done first.

You now have 5(18) -5

Multiplication is now done, giving 90 - 5

and your final answer is 85.

The rule of PEMDAS is to evaluate

1.

**Parentheses**2.

**Exponents**3.

**Multiplication and Division from left to right**(They have the same level of importance. You complete whichever one you see first. If the problem says 8 * 6 / 12 * 2, then you evaluate 8*6, which is 48, then divide by 12, which is 4, then multiply by 2.)4.

**Addition and Subtraction from left to right.**(They also have the same level of importance.)## Still looking for help? Get the right answer, fast.
