Math's a tool not a terror

The simplified fraction is 4/9 please see below

First of all this basically the same as PEDMAS

It depends on where you are learning your math, by that I mean Asia, Europe, North America, South America etc. In fact internationally you may also see BEDMAS (Brackets Exponents) or BIDMAS (Brackets Indices) that's why its good to look this up.

BODMAS

Brackets (first) ENCLOSURES

Operations (Powers and Square roots, etc)

DM Division and Multiplication (left to right)

AS Addition and Subtraction (left to right)

As with PEDMAS you start with the deepest nested enclosures and work your way out

So for

14+3{34-18-14}÷3[6×2+17-(2×7)]

Get those parentheses inside those bracket, these are the most deeply nested

14+3{34-18-14}÷3[6×2+17-14]

Get the multiplication inside the brackets

14+3{34-18-14}÷3[12+17-14]

Now all the enclosures are on the same level from left right

14+3{34-18-14}÷3[12+17-14]

14+3{2}÷3[15]

Now from left to right remove the enclosures

14 + 6 ÷ 45

20 ÷ 45

4 ÷ 9

4/9 is the fraction

4/9 = 0.44444

Give it a try

Look up BODMAS and check my math
