MYP Math, Order of operations

The order of operations is Brackets -> Exponents -> Divisions and Multiplications(as you come to them) -> Additions and Subtractions (working from the left)
So we have
24-18/6*5+7=24-3*5+7 (division first)
=24-15+7 (multiplication next)
=9+7 (subtraction next)
=16 (and finally addition)
