What does 9-7x2 equals?

To solve this expression you have to use order of operations or PEMDAS. PEMDAS stands for Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. Using PEMDAS, you have to multiply first because there is no Parenthesis or Exponents. Therefore, 7x2=14. Next, you subtract because there is no Division or Addition to be done. Therefore, 9-14= -5. Ans: -5
