7th grade math

posted by on .

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
