b. 2 (–4) – (–8) – (5) (–9 ) remove the ( )’s
= 2 – 4 + 8 – 5 – 9
= 2 + 8 – 4 – 5 – 9
= 10 – 18
= –8
The ( ), [ ], or { } are grouping symbols. Each set of symbol
must contain both the left-hand and right-hand parts. Each set
encloses calculations that are to be done within the symbol.
Example D.
a. –6 – (8 – 9) do the calculation inside the “( )”
= – 6 – (– 1) remove parentheses
= – 6 + 1
= – 5
b. (–6 – 8) – 9 do the calculation inside the “( )”
= (–14) – 9

If there is a set of grouping symbol inside another set of
grouping symbol, the inner set is to be calculated first.

If there is a set of grouping symbol inside another set of
grouping symbol, the inner set is to be calculated first.
Example E.
2 – [–6 – (8 + 9)] do the calculation inside the “( )”
= 2 – [–6 – (17)]

Exercise A. Drop the parentheses and write the expressions in
a simpler form, then combine.
1. 7 (+3) 2. 7 (–3) 3. –7 (3)
4. –7 (– 3) 5. –7 (3) + 4 6. –7 (–3) – 4
7. –17 (– 23) + 24 8. 16 (–31) – 22
9. –8 (–15) – 9
10. –8 (–15) – 9 + (– 3)
B. Drop the parentheses after the subtraction (don’t forget to
switch the sign) and write the expressions in a simpler form,
then combine.
11. 7 – (+3) 12. 7 – (–3) 13. –7 – (3)
14. –7 – (– 3) 15. –7 – (3) + 4 16. –7 – (–3) – 4
17. –17 – (– 23) + 24 18. 16 – (+31) – 22
