**Order of Operations 2.1.4 California Standards: What it means for you:**

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations California Standards: Algebra and Functions 1.3 Apply algebraic order of operations and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties to evaluate expressions; and justify each step in the process. Algebra and Functions 1.4 Solve problems manually by using the correct order of operations or by using a scientific calculator. What it means for you: You’ll see that it matters in which order you evaluate an expression, and you’ll learn the correct order. Key Words: parentheses exponent multiply and divide add and subtract expression evaluate

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Sometimes you’ll meet expressions containing different combinations of operations (such as ×, ÷, +, and –). 2 × 4 – 6 4 – 2 – x ÷ 3 a × 4 + b × 3 When you do, you need to be sure to do all of them in the right order.

4
Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations The Order In Which You Evaluate Makes a Difference The expression × 7 looks like it could give two different answers, depending on how you work it out. Working out “2 + 3” first gives: × 7 = 5 × 7 = 35 Working out “3 × 7” first gives: × 7 = = 23 To avoid this situation, this rule is used for all math expressions: Always do multiplication before addition, unless parentheses tell you to do otherwise.

**Order of Operations 2.1.4 Evaluate 2 + 3 × 7, and (2 + 3) × 7.**

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Example 1 Evaluate × 7, and (2 + 3) × 7. Solution 2 + 3 × 7 Work out the multiplication first = = 23 The parentheses tell you to do the addition first (2 + 3) × 7 = 5 × 7 = 35 You do all multiplications and divisions before additions and subtractions (unless parentheses tell you otherwise). Solution follows…

**Order of Operations 2.1.4 Evaluate: (i) 32 – 3 × 8 (ii) 56 – 8 ÷ 2**

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Example 2 Evaluate: (i) 32 – 3 × 8 (ii) 56 – 8 ÷ 2 Solution (i) 32 – 3 × 8 Work out the multiplication first = 32 – 24 = 8 (ii) 56 – 8 ÷ 2 Work out the division first = 56 – 4 = 52 Solution follows…

7
Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations You do multiplications and divisions working from left to right. You also do additions and subtractions from left to right — after you’ve finished all the multiplications and divisions. For example, 3 × 7 – ÷ 3 = (3 × 7) – 2 + (9 ÷ 3) = (21) – 2 + (3) = = 22

11
Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Remember... multiplications and divisions before additions and subtractions — unless parentheses tell you otherwise. More generally, the order you should perform operations is as follows: Order of Operations: ( ) [ ] 1. Evaluate anything inside parentheses (or brackets) y2 2. Evaluate exponents × ÷ 3. Multiply and divide from left to right + – 4. Add and subtract from left to right

12
Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations An easier way to remember the order of operations is to remember the word PEMDAS. This word stands for: ( ) [ ] 1. Parentheses y2 2. Exponents × ÷ 3. Multiplication / Division + – 4. Addition / Subtraction

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Example 5 Alan and Jessica are each trying to calculate the expression 24 ÷ 3 – 22. Their work is shown below. Who has the correct answer? Alan: 24 ÷ 3 – 22 = 8 – 22 = 62 = 36 Jessica: 24 ÷ 3 – 22 = 24 ÷ 3 – 4 = 8 – 4 = 4 Solution follows…

**Order of Operations 2.1.4 Solution**

Lesson 2.1.4 Order of Operations Example 5 Solution Alan: 24 ÷ 3 – 22 = 8 – 22 = 62 = 36 Jessica: 24 ÷ 3 – 22 = 24 ÷ 3 – 4 = 8 – 4 = 4 Alan performed the division, then the subtraction, then evaluated the exponent. That is incorrect — he should have found the exponent first. Jessica evaluated the exponent first, then performed the division, then the subtraction. This is the right order, so Jessica has the right answer.
