Nope. I'll wait a bit before I post it, in case anyone else wants to have a go at it. I'll explain how to get the answer, too.

Were talking about how some southern states have a reputation for inbreeding and we were wondering if you would care to chime in from your own personal experience.

My cousin, who is currently in college majoring in Math, even used the acronym PEMDAS in her answer and still got it wrong. SMH

Sorry, nope. It's always PEMDAS. I checked on it. It is always PEMDAS.

Cheah. You do the multiplication first then the subtraction and addition, unless it's in a parenthesis. That's how I understand it, at least.

answer is 12

in the absence of parenthesis

you always do exponents first, multiplication/division second,
addition/subtraction last

3+3*3-3+3=?

PEMDAS, also known as order of operations, stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction. There are no parentheses or exponents in this equation, so you then look for multiplication and division (3x3, which equals 9). Then you add and subtract. 3+9-3+3 =12
