# Simplify: $3469_w69_h21.png$

Question:

A
−3

Explaination

The Rules Guiding Order of Operations require that we address exponents first, then multiplications, then subtractions.

Exponent first: $1914_w49_h17.png$

9 − 3($4857_w15_h16.png$) = 9− 3(4)

Multiply: 3(4) = 12

= 9 − 12

Add the opposite.

= 9 + (−12)

Add: 9 + (−12)

= −3
