The question is simplify

-9=1(36divided by 2 x3-4)

I did -9+1(18x3-4)

_9+1(54-4)

-9=1(50)

-9+50

41

Is this correct

I did this with a friend and we both got different answers. Maybe I di the wrong order of operation?

your question makes no sense.

You have an equation made up of -9 on the left and an arithmetic calculation on the right side

the calcuation on the right is correct as 50

so you end up with saying

-9 = 50 , which of course is nonsense.

sorry it was -9+1(50)

-9+50=41

THE = should have been a +

sorry I didn't catch that but that is how I got to 41, is that correct?

Thank you
