# Do you divide before you multiply?

Then go from left to right doing any "A" or "S" as

**you**find them.**You**can remember by saying "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". Note: in the UK they say BODMAS (Brackets,Orders,**Divide**,**Multiply**,Add,Subtract), and in Canada they say BEDMAS (Brackets,Exponents,**Divide**,**Multiply**,Add,Subtract). It all means the same thing!A.

### What is the order of operations in math?

When children initially learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, they begin by performing

**operations**on two numbers. Over time, mathematicians have developed a set of rules called the**order of operations**to determine which**operation**to do first. The rules are: Multiply and divide from left to right.#### Which operation should be done first?

The order in which operations should be done is abbreviated as PEMDAS: Parentheses. Exponents. Multiplication and Division (from**left**to right)#### What is the order of math classes?

**The typical order of math classes in high school is:**- Algebra 1.
- Geometry.
- Algebra 2/Trigonometry.
- Pre-Calculus.
- Calculus.

#### What is the Bodmas rule?

**BODMAS**is an acronym and it stands for Bracket, Of, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction. In certain regions, PEDMAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) is the synonym of**BODMAS**. It explains the order of operations to solve an expression.

### What is the order of operations in a math equation?

It stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication/Division, Addition/Subtraction.

**PEMDAS**is often expanded to the mnemonic "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". Most common in the UK, India and Australia are BODMAS meaning Brackets,**Order**, Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction.#### What is a power function equation?

Savanna can use her knowledge of**power functions**to create**equations**based on the paths of the comets. A**power function**is in the form of f(x) = kx^n, where k = all real numbers and n = all real numbers. You can change the way the graph of a**power function**looks by changing the values of k and n.#### What is the rule for exponential?

**EXPONENTIAL RULES**.**Rule**1: To multiply identical bases, add the exponents.**Rule**2: To divide identical bases, subtract the exponents.**Rule**3: When there are two or more exponents and only one base, multiply the exponents.#### What do you call the number in front of a variable?

The number in front of a variable, called the coefficient, indicates how many times the variable was added to itself. 3x = x + x + x 3x is read "**three**x" the 'glue' holding the**3**and the x together is multiplication.

C.

### What is the order or operations in math?

The "

**operations**" are addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, and grouping; the "**order**" of these**operations**states which**operations**take precedence (are taken care of) before which other**operations**. In other words, the precedence is: Parentheses (simplify inside 'em) Exponents.#### How do you find the order of operation?

**So, when parentheses are involved, the rules for order of operations are:**- Do operations in parentheses.
- Multiply and divide from left to right.
- Add and subtract from left to right.

#### What is the order of math classes?

**The typical order of math classes in high school is:**- Algebra 1.
- Geometry.
- Algebra 2/Trigonometry.
- Pre-Calculus.
- Calculus.

#### Do you use Pemdas if there is no parenthesis?

**No**,**you would**only multiply the last 1 by zero, as**you do**multiplication first, by**PEMDAS**. Then,**you would**add or subtract the remainder of the ones. To answer the question,**you would use PEMDAS**to answer any math question, especially**if there**are**no parentheses**.
