• I mightbbe totally wrong but I would do 6-2 which is 4 and multiply that times 1 which is 5-4

• 6-2(5-4)

To solve, solve the one in parentheses first.

6-2(1) because 5-4 = 1 (perform multiplication)

6-2 because 2(1) = 2 (perform subtraction)

4 because 6-2 = 4

Do 5 - 4 inside the brackets first

multiply 2 by what is inside the brackets.

then subtract the above from 6

4 is what you should get.

• 4. Parenthesis goes first so 5-5 = 1. Then multiplication goes next so 2(1) = 2. Finally 6 - 2 = 4.
