# How do you solve #(3\times 3- ( 2+ 1) ) \div ( 5- 2)#?

##### 1 Answer

**BODMAS** / **PEMDAS**

#### Explanation:

**BODMAS** or **PEMDAS** rule states the order you have to complete operations in:

Usually we start with the parentheses **within** the parentheses. In other words, the **smallest** brackets.

Here,

Now, we have two brackets. What do we do?

Remember, **multiplication** comes before addition or subtraction, so we complete that operation first

[**note**: we do **not** do division now, as it is an operation **outside** the parentheses]

Now, we have **two** subtraction operations. Since both are withing brackets, and both are **subtraction**, they are on the same level on the **BODMAS** scale. We do them **simultaneously**:

We can remove the brackets, as there are no more operations within them:

Solve it:

Thus, solved.
