# Simplify the expression. (2/3) * (15.5 + (-24) ) + (-18)

$\frac{2}{3} * (15.5 + (-24)) + (-18) \\ \frac{2}{3} * (15.5 - 24) - 18 \\ (\frac{2}{3} * -8.5) - 18 \\ (\frac{2*-8.5}{3}) -18 \\ \frac{-17}{3} - 18 \\ -5.67 - 18 \\ -23.67$ Depending on how far you want to simplify it, the answer to your problem is either (-17/3) - 18 or -23.67 Hope this helps!!
