What is the answer to: 6 x 6 – 6 + 6 x 6 – 6 x 6 = ?

This problem looks easy but upon further inspection, you realize you have to do more than 4×4+4… You have to use the Order of Operations.

Order of Operations- PEMDAS (all problems are read left to right)

  • Parenthesis
  • Exponents
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Addition
  • Subtraction

Order of operations says you should do the multiplication first in this problem. In order to help see where the multiplication is, you can put parentheses around them:

(6 x 6) – 6 + (6 x 6) – (6 x 6) = ?

6 x 6 = 36 so 36 – 6 + 36 – 36

Get it yet? The answer is 30!
