Whenever you have a fraction bar you must assume that what ever is

on top is group together and what ever is on the bottom is group

together. In the example problem, even doe there are no

parentheses there, you must treat it like there are parentheses

around the 5, and 13. Then use the order of operations and add the

numbers that are in parentheses first. Example steps below

Example 2:

Remember you must assume that there are parentheses around the

numerator ( 10-4) and the denominator ( 7+2). Then use the order

of operations and add the numbers that are in parentheses first.
