My son has a sixth grade math question here. The rule is to add parentheses to this equation so the answer is correct.

9 to the second power - 2 x 15 +16 - 8 = 11

Sorry, I do not know how to type 9 to the sec. without typing it out. Thanks

9^2 - 2 x (15+16) -8 = 11.

81 - 62 - 8 = 11.

PEMDAS or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally

Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction

9^2-2(15+16)-8=11

9^2-2(31)-8=11

81-2(31)-8=11

81-62-8=11

11=11

92-(2x(15+16))-8=11

92=81

tree'd dammit
2x(15+16)=2x31=62
81-62=19
19-8=11
