if you translate the words into numbers, you get:
1/6*42-4
First, we multiply (because of order of operations)
1/6 of 42 is 7, because multiplying by 1/x (in this case, 6) is the same thing as dividing by x (in this case, 6) so it is basically like 42/6. So we simplify it to:
7-4, which is
3

1/6 of 42 is equal to 7, then you take away seven from 4
