My name is Stefanie
Level of question: middle
My own curiosity.

I do remember the rules of BEDMAS, but for some reason this question
puzzles me.

6 X 9 - 3 + 44

I started with the Multiplication

54 - 3 + 44

But then I got stuck, do I proceed with adding the 44 and subtracting
the 3
or figure out what -3 + 44 is, but then how would that work with 54?

Can you help me out please?

Stefanie
