**ANSWER**

Remember your PEMDAS order of operations.

What do you think the answer is? 2 or 18?

If you used the PEMDAS rule you would have to do the question in the parentheses first, which is 5 – 2, which equals 3.

Then you must shift over to the left equation and do 12 ÷ 2= 6.

**Then you have to multiply 6 x 3 which equals 18 and there is your answer!**
