Question
(-3)square*[5/(3)]square=?explain with sol.

Answer
Hello, Adarsh.

(-3)^2 x (5/3)^2 = 25

Order of operations dictates that exponents are evaluated before multiplication or division, and multiplication and division be done before addition and subtraction.

-3 squared equals 9. 5/3 squared equals 25/9 (square both the numerator and denominator of the original fraction).

9 x 25/9 equals 25 (the nines cancel out).

Hope this helps.

Regards,
John
