Order of Operations PEMDAS
by Alex Garcia and Cameron Rogers

Order of Operations The Order of Operations is the order of solving a mathematical problem. You must solve problems using the 6 operations, working from left to right.

PEMDAS P – Parentheses E – Exponents M/D – Multiplication or Division
Use the acronym PEMDAS to help you remember the Order of Operations P – Parentheses E – Exponents M/D – Multiplication or Division A/S – Add or Subtract

PEMDAS = Parentheses ( )
Parentheses are the 1st operation to look for in a problem. If there are parentheses then you must do the math in them before anything else. Ex: 11 – (2 + 4) 2 + 4 = 6 11 – 6 = 5 Before you can do anything else, you must do the operation inside the parentheses.

PEMDAS = Exponents The 2nd operation to look for in a problem are exponents. If there are exponents solve them next. Ex: 52 = 25 = 32 After solving any problems in parentheses, solve all exponents.

PEMDAS = Multiplication + Division
Multiplication and Division are the 3rd operations to look for in a problem. Solve multiplication and division problems working from left to right. Ex: 5 x 5 x 6 = 30 = 42 Ex: 36 ÷ 6 – 4 36 ÷ 6 = 6 6 – 4 = 2 The 1st operation to do in this equation is multiplication. The 1st operation to do in this equation is division
