But, when you see something lượt thích ...

7 + (6 × 52 + 3)

... What part should you calculate first?Start at the left và go lớn the right?Or go from right khổng lồ left?

Warning: Calculate them in the wrong order, & you can get a wrong answer !

So, long ago people agreed to lớn follow rules when doing calculations, and they are:

## Order of Operations

Do things in Parentheses First

 4 × (5 + 3) = 4 × 8 = 4 × (5 + 3) = 20 + 3 = (wrong)

Exponents (Powers, Roots) before Multiply, Divide, địa chỉ or Subtract

 5 × 22 = 5 × 4 = 5 × 22 = 102 = (wrong)

Multiply or Divide before you add or Subtract

2 + 5 × 3 = 2 + 15 =
2 + 5 × 3 = 7 × 3 =

Divide & Multiply rank equally (and go left to right).

Add & Subtract rank equally (and go left lớn right) After you have done "P" and "E", just go from left khổng lồ right doing any "M" or "D" as you find them.

Then go from left to lớn right doing any "A" or "S" as you find them.

## Examples

### Example: How bởi you work out 3 + 6 × 2 ?

First 6 × 2 = 12, then 3 + 12 = 15

### Example: How do you work out 12 / 6 × 3 / 2 ?

Multiplication và Division rank equally, so just go left lớn right:

First 12 / 6 = 2, then 2 × 3 = 6, then 6 / 2 = 3 ### Example: Sam threw a ball straight up at 20 meters per second, how far did it go in 2 seconds?

Sam uses this special formula that includes the effects of gravity:

height = velocity × time − (1/2) × 9.8 × time2

Sam puts in the velocity of 20 meters per second & time of 2 seconds:

height = trăng tròn × 2 − (1/2) × 9.8 × 22

Now for the calculations!
