-22

Work Step by Step

We first follow the instructions to plug in -30 for C. When we are simplifying a fraction, we simplify the numbers in the numerator and the denominator before dividing. Once we have simplified the numerator and denominator of the fraction, we divide before we add according to order of operations. $9(-30) \div 5 +32 = -270 \div 5 +32 = -54+32=-22$
