The question is simplify
-9=1(36divided by 2 x3-4)
I did -9+1(18x3-4)
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)
THE = should have been a +
sorry I didn't catch that but that is how I got to 41, is that correct?
