D-ivide ORDER OF OPERATIONS
In order to solve a question with multiple operations (add/subtract, multiply/divide) there is an order to follow often referred to as 'BEDMAS'
BEDMAS is an acronym that stands for;
B-bracketsE-exponentsDM-multiply or divide (left to right)AS-add subtract (left to right).
This is to help students remember what order to do the work in.
- As you can see above we started with brackets.
- then we did the exponents.
- Followed by multiplication or division
- then end up adding or subtracting
I found a website where it explains all of it better than I am:
