The expression is

__Order of Operations:__

To simplify the expression follow the order of operations: **(PEMDAS)**

1. Evaluate the expressions inside the **P**arenthesis/**B**rackets **(P)**.

2. Evaluate **P**owers/**E**xponents **(E)**.

3. **M**ultiply and/or **D**ivide in order from left to right **(MD)**.

4. **A**dd and/or **S**ubtract in order from left to right **(AS)**.

A simple technique for remembering the order of operations is turned

into phrase "**P**lease **E**xcuse **M**y **D**ear **A**unty **S**ally"

Simplify the expression using order of operations **(PEMDAS)**.

Since there are no grouping symbols and powers.

**First operation is Evaluate Powers**

(Evaluate the power: )

**Next operation is Subtraction. **

(Additive inverse property: )

**Next operation is Multiplication.**

(Multiplicative property of zero: )

**Next operation isAddition.**

(Additive identity property: )

**Next operation is Subtraction.**

(Subtraction property: )

The value of expression is 2.
