depends on which operation you do first. If addition (6+3) X 4 would equal 36, but if you multiply first 6 + (3 X 4) would equal 18.

Did you pass fourth grade arithmetic?

Follow the BODMAS rule:

Bracket Of Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction

In the 6+3x4,

First, do the multiplication i.e. 3X4 = 12

Then do the addition - 6+12 i.e. 18.

Ask the elemary 3 school kid to do it.

Is that (6+3) x 4 = 36 or is it 6+(3x4) = 18.

Parenthesis prevent errors. Assuming multiplication before addition isn't always right. This confusion caused by bad teachers.

It's a real-life example of applied math, which is why you were  taught the rules in fourth grade arithmetic.

To solve this we can use PEMDAS

First, let's solve the multiplication: 3 x 4 = 12

Second, let's solve the addition: 6 + 12 = 18

The answer is 18
