PLEASE HELP ME SOLVE 8(3X5)-6(9/3)
I got this far 8(15)-6(3) then I got lost
You are on the right track. Be sure to use the order of operations (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction). Multiply the 8 and 15 to get 120, then multiply the 6 and 3 to get 18.
That leaves 120-18, which you would simply subtract to get your answer.
