Order of Operations What is an operation?
Home Order of Operations What is an operation? Let’s start out with reviewing what an operation is. In math, operations are the things we do with numbers (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing). These are represented using symbols: × ÷ - +

Order of Operations What does that mean?
Home Order of Operations What does that mean? When you are solving a math problem, you have to do each operation in a specific order. This might seem like a silly rule, but if you do not follow it you will not get the correct answer.

Home How does it work? Now that you know what Order of Operations means, you are going to learn some rules about solving problems. Then, you are going to practice solving some math problems.

Home Rule 1 You must always solve a math problem from left to right, just like when you are reading a word. Go to the next page to see an example.

Home 12-5+6=? Look at the problem above. If I added 5 and 6 first, this is what I would get: 12-5+6=? I would add the 5 and 6, which equals 11. I would put the 11 in place of the 5+6. Now I have this problem: 12-11= ? The answer is 1. I did not solve the problem from left to right. Let’s see what happens if I do.

12-5+6=? Home If I start from the left, and do the subtraction first, this is what I would get: 12-5+6=1 I would subtract 5 from 12 first, which equals 7. I would put the 7 in place of the 12-5. 7+6= ? The answer is 13 this time. This is the correct answer, because I followed the rule and solved the problem from left to right. Click “Try it!” to try a problem on your own. Try it!

Home Now you try! Solve this problem from left to right. Use scratch paper if you need to. 15-3+2=? Which answer is correct? 10 14 12

Click on the arrow to continue.
Home Great job! You are correct. You solved the problem from left to right. You are ready for the next rule for order of operations. Click on the arrow to continue.

Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.
Home Sorry, that is not correct. Remember that you need to solve the problem from left to right. 15-3+2=? Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.

Multiplication and Division
Home Multiplication and Division Rule 1 is easy when we only have addition and subtraction operations. What about when we have multiplication and division operations? Click the question mark to find out.

Rule 2 Home Multiplication and division always have to be done before subtraction and addition. You still need to remember to solve the problem from left to right too! Multiplication and division are solved from left to right first. Addition and subtraction are solved from left to right next. Go to the next slide to see an example.

Home 9-4×2+2=? If I solve the problem from left to right without doing the multiplication first, this is what happens: 9-4×2+2=? I subtract 4 from 9 first and get 5. I put the 5 in place of the 9-4. 5×2+2=? Then, I multiply 5 and 2 to get 10. I put the 10 in place of the 5×2, and now I need to finish up my problem. 10+2=12 My answer is 12. Let’s see what happens when we do the multiplication first. Click the arrow to find out.

9-4×2+2=? Home If I solve the multiplication part of the problem first, this is what happens: 9-4×2+2=? I multiply 4 and 2 first and get 8. I put the 8 in place of the 4×2. 9-8+2=? Now, since I only have addition and subtraction left, I do those operations from left to right. I subtract 8 from 9, and get 1. I put the 1 in the place of 9-8. 1+2=3 My answer is 3. This is the correct answer, because I followed the order of operations. Click “Try it!” to try some problems on your own. Try it!

Home 15-5×2+6=? Solve the problem above. Use a paper and pencil if needed. Click on the correct answer below. 11 26 25

5+6=11 You are Correct! You solved the problem correctly. Great job!
Home You are Correct! You solved the problem correctly. Great job! If you guessed the answer, this is how the problem should be solved. Check your work, or try this. 15-5×2+6=? The multiplication should be done first. =? Next, complete the addition and subtraction from left to right. 5+6=? 5+6=11

Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.
Home Sorry, that answer is incorrect. Remember that you must do the multiplication and division operations first (from left to right). Then you can complete the addition and subtraction from left to right. Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.

Home 20÷4+5×3=? Solve the problem above. Use a paper and pencil if needed. Click on the correct answer below. 30 20

Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.
Sorry, that answer is incorrect. Remember that you must do the multiplication and division operations first (from left to right). Then you can complete the addition and subtraction from left to right. Home Click the arrow to go back and try the problem again.

You are Correct! 5+15=20 You solved the problem correctly. Great job!
Home You are Correct! You solved the problem correctly. Great job! If you guessed the answer, this is how the problem should be solved. Check your work or try this. 20÷4+5×3=? Multiplication and division comes first, but you must solve the from left to right. So, the division should be done first. 5+5×3=? The multiplication is next. 5+15=? Now, do the addition. 5+15=20

Parenthesis () So far, you have learned:
Home Parenthesis () So far, you have learned: Solve problems from left to right. Division and multiplication must be done first (from left to right). Addition and subtraction is done next (from left to right). What about when there are parentheses? Push the question mark to find out.

Rule 3 Operations in parentheses always have to be done first.
Home Operations in parentheses always have to be done first. You still need to remember to solve the problem from left to right too! All operations in parentheses are done from left to right first. Multiplication and division are solved from left to right next. Addition and subtraction are solved from left to right last. Go to the next slide to see an example.

5×(4+3)-2=? 35-2=33 The operations in parentheses must be done first.
Home 5×(4+3)-2=? The operations in parentheses must be done first. 5×(4+3)-2=? (4+3) is 7, so put 7 in place of it. 5×7-2=? Since there are no more parentheses, I can do all of the multiplication and division next. 5×7 is 35, so I put 35 in place of that. 35-2=? I finish the problem by doing the addition and subtraction. 35-2=33

Home 2×5+(6÷3)=? First, you need to complete the operations in the parentheses. 2×5+(6÷3)=? (6÷3) is 2, so put the 2 in place of it. 2×5+2=? Multiplication and division are next, so solve 2×5. This equals 10, so put 10 in the problem. 10+2=? Last, you can do the addition and subtraction. 10+2=12

Now, Practice the Rules on Your Own!
Use a pencil and paper. Click on the correct answer for each problem. Make sure you complete the problems in order. This time, show your work on your paper. 7-5+(8÷2)×9=? (10-4)×6+12=? 8+12×2-(16÷2)=? 54 38 45 108 62 48 24 32 12 Home
