Work Step by Step

$\dfrac{6+|8-2|+3^{2}}{18-3}$ Evaluate the exponential expression and perform the operation inside absolute value bars in the numerator: $\dfrac{6+|8-2|+3^{2}}{18-3}=\dfrac{6+|6|+9}{18-3}=...$ Now, just evaluate the operations both in the numerator and the denominator. At the end, simplify if possible: $...=\dfrac{21}{15}=\dfrac{7}{5}$
