## How to Use P-E-M/D-A/S

You may be thinking, so I need to use PEMDAS, but how? Let me show you,

**P stands for Parenthisis,**those are the little quarter moons you see hugging some numbers. Do the equation inside the parenthisis first.**E stands for Exponets,**Those are the numbers that have a mini nuber above them, if you see ten with a mini number of two next to it, do ten times ten.**M/D stands for Multiplication or Division,**If the multiplication problem comes first in left to right order do it first or vis-versa.**Finally A/S stands for Addition or Subtraction,**like M/D whichever comes first in the problems do it first.## TRY IT!
