Order of Opperations

Please excuse my dear aunt sally

The order of operations is is easy once you learn how first you look at the parenthesis.

After you have done the parenthesis you move to the exponents. Then the multiplication of division depending on which comes first. Lastly the addition and subtraction depending on which comes first in left to right order left to right order. We use order of operations to make sure that we all get the same accurate answer.
