#### Transcript of Order of Operations

The Order of Operations tells us how to solve an expression.

It tells us what to look for and what to solve first.
What is the Order of Operations?
P=

parentheses
E=

exponents
MD=
multiply and divide (
left to right
)
AS=

left to right
)
What is the order?
Example 2

Step 1: Solve what's in the parentheses.
7 x
9

Step 2: Multiply.
63
Example 1
Do you think you understand?
Discovering the Order of Operations
Solve the expression
7 x (10-1).
1st step
Finished
2nd step
Spark
Last step
Multiply 4 x -3
Divide -12 by 6.
Third Step
Divide 8 by 4.
55 ÷ 11 + (5 + 2)(3)
Don't forget to follow
P
E
MD
AS
NOTE:
We must
rewrite
the expression after solving each operation. This is VERY IMPORTANT!!!

Ex: (5-4) x 3

1
x 3

3
-12

÷ 6 + 8 ÷ 4
-2

+ 8 ÷ 4
-2 +

2
(4)(-3) ÷ 6 + 8 ÷ 4
