    Answer: you multiply because of pendants

    Step-by-step explanation:

    P = parentheses

    E = exponent

    M = multiplication

    D = division

    A = addition

    S = subtraction

    Always follow the pemdas when it comes to an equation like that

    Multiplying -3 and 4 to get -12

    The first step is multiplying -3 and 4 because they are all in parentheses and using PEMDAS

    P-Parentheses

    E-exponents

    M-multiply  or   D- division            (whichever is first in the expression)

    A-addition  or  S-subtraction        (whichever is first in the expression)
