==> When calculating the numbers, even if there are no brackets, multiplication and division come first.
You get 10+8÷3×6-2=10+(8/3)6-2=10+16-2=24.

We must remember to follow the rules of PEMDAS when calculating the given expression.

10 + 8 ÷ 3 × 6 - 2 = ?

We can first divide 8 by 3:

10 + 8/3 x 6 - 2

Next we can multiply 8/3 by 6:

10 + 16 - 2 = 24
