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

  1. Evaluate the expressions inside Brackets/Parenthesis (P).
  2. Evaluate Powers/Exponents (E).
  3. Multiply and/or Divide in order from left to right (MD).
  4. Add and/or Subtract in order from left to right (AS).

Given expression is:14/[3(8 - 2) - 11].

Evaluate the expressions inside Brackets/Parenthesis (P).

= 14 / [(3(6) -11]

Next operation is multiplication.

= 14/ [18 -11]

Next operation is subtraction.

= 14/7

Next operation is division.

= 2.

14/(3(6)-11)

14/(18-11)
