The question:

5-(6x4)+(-9x-1)



The answer:

It’s not entirely clear what you are asking.

I assume each x stands for multiplication (rather than x as an unknown variable), and that you want to know how to evaluate the expression.

I think this is what you mean:

5 - (6*4)+[-9*(-1)]

To evaluate this expression use PEMDAS order (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction).

Evaluate parentheses first:

5 - (6*4)+[-9*(-1)]

5 - (24)+[9]

5 – 24 + 9

Combine the remaining terms:

5 – 24 + 9

-10

The final answer: -10
