60 divided by 30 subtract 24 equals what.

We might be mistaken into thinking that we need to do 60 divided by 30, which is two, and then subtract 24 from two. But that’s incorrect. We need to think about the order of the operations. This tells us that we need to calculate anything in brackets first. So our first step is to calculate 30 subtract 24, which is six. And the second step is to divide 60 by six, which is 10.

60 divided by 30 take away 24 is 10.
