The Order of Operations

Use it to figure out hard math problems!

Why You Should Use the Order of Operations

You should always use the order of operations so that you can get the correct answer every time! You can remember the order of operations easily by using the word PEMDAS.

What Does PEMDAS Stand For?

The P in PEMDAS means parenthesis. You should always do the problems inside the parenthesis first. The E stands for exponents. You should do the exponential equations second. M+D=Multiplication & Division. You should do the multiplication and division third. It does not matter which operation you do first but you should do the operation that comes first from left to right. The last thing that you should remember to do is the addition and subtraction. Along with multiplication and division it does not matter what operation comes first. It depends on which one comes first from left to right.
