3+3x3-3+3 = 3+9-3+3

Then add and subtract left to right

3+9-3+9 = 12

P there ae no parentheses

E there are no exponents

M 3+9-3+3

D there is no division

A do all of the addition (3+9)-(3+3) becomes 12-6

S do all subtraction 12-6= 6

E - N/A

M - (3x3) = 9

D - N/A

A - 3+(9)+3 = 15

S - 15-3 = 12

Answer = 12

Any other solution is performing PEMDAS incorrectly.

I have another question.

Why does everyone say that 3+3x3-3+3 equals to 12 or 18 when clearly, it's not the answer.

If you need to know what the answer is, you need to follow 'PEMDAS'.

----------------

PEMDAS:

- P=Parentheses
- E=Exponents
- M=Multiplication
- D=Division
- A=Addition
- S=Subtraction

----------------

- 3+3x3-3+3 (Multiplication starts first) 3x3=9
- 3+9-3+3 (Then add both addition sentences) 3+9=12 and 3+3=6
- 12-6 (Lastly, we subtract) 12-6=6 since 6x2=12

That's how to find the answer to the equation: 3+3x3-3+3=6
