Whenever a number is next to a parenthesis you are supposed to multiply what is outside by what is inside. Also, the parenthesis might be there so that you can clearly see the 15 is negative. Because order does not matter if they are all multiplication you can multiply in any order you want. All of the following are correct. 3 x (-15) = -45 .... (-45) x 2 = -90 (-15) x 2 = -30 .... (-30) x 3 = -90 3 x 2 = 6 ... 6 x (-15) = -90
