Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

Using order of operations, then,

\begin{align*} \dfrac{8\div4\cdot6|4^2-5^2|}{9-4+11-4^2} &\Rightarrow \dfrac{8\div4\cdot6|16-25|}{9-4+11-16} \\\\&= \dfrac{8\div4\cdot6(9)}{9-4+11-16} \\\\&= \dfrac{2\cdot6(9)}{5+11-16} \\\\&= \dfrac{12(9)}{16-16} \\\\&= \dfrac{108}{0} \\\\&= \text{undefined} .\end{align*}
