ORDER OF OPERATIONS How to do a math problem with more than one operation in the correct order.

The Order of Operations
The order in which mathematicians perform math problems. Exponents Parenthesis – working inward outward Multiply or Divide – Left to Right Add or Subtract – Left to Right

PEMDAS Remember the order by the phrase Please Excuse My Dear
Aunt Sally

(2 + 3) 82 The “P” and “E” The “P” stands for items in parenthesis
Do all items in the parenthesis first (2 + 3) The “E” stands for Exponents Do anything that has a exponent (power) 82

The “MD” Represents Multiply and Divide
Do which ever one of these comes first in the problem Work these two operations from left to right

The “AS” 8 + 7 - 5 + 2 Represents Add and Subtract
Do which ever one of these comes first Work left to right

Let’s Do a Few Together…
50-(15+9) 4(11+7)-9×8 2(5²+(36÷6)) 5-6²+4³-(10/5)×2
