You use PEMDAS, which is Parenthesis, Exponet, Divide, Multiply, Add, Subtract. You have to do it in that order.So 6x9+6x0.5 is a problem you have to use PEMDAS for.P&E go togehter, so when there is only parentesis or exponets, and no other symbols, then you do the problem across - left to right. Same with D&M, and A&S.In the problem 6x9+6x0.5, M (multiply) is the first symbol. So, 6x9 is 54, and 6x0.5 is 3. Then, A (add) comes next, and then no more symbols. So just add 54 to 3 and you get 57.The answer to 6x9+6x0.5 is 57, AKA - 6x9+6x0.5=57

you use PEMDAS which is parentheses exponents multiplication and division from left to right addition and subtraction from left to right

Find the length of the base and the perpendicular height. Multiply together. Divide answer by 2. Area of Triangle = ½(Base x Perpendicular Height) For right angled triangles, take the length of the two shortest sides, multiply them together and divide the answer by two.

If my formula is right, it should be 108 square inches. Since it is a right triangle, you should be able to solve it like a rectangle. However, you would take half. Here you would convert feet to inches, and that would be 24. Then multiply it by 9. Then divide by 2. Or, to make it easier, you can multiply 9 by 12 and not divide later.

Simple. Just multiply the base by the height of the triangle, and divide it into two. This works for all types of triangles.

It is something you use in math to answer questions that have more than one operation and more than two parts of a problem(ex.2+7 you can't use the order of operations for,(5/8)6+7,you can use this though).The way to remember the order is PEMDAS(parenthesis,exponents,multiply,divide,add,subtract)But go left to right when you do multiply/divide and add/subtract

The order of operations can be remembered by the using PEMDAS. Parenthesis, exponents, multiply or divide (whichever comes first left to right) , add or subtract (whichever comes first left to right).
