Long debate about order of operations last night. When i see 12/4+2 i instantly go to 12 with the horizontal line and in parentheses (4+2). Am i doing something wrong here?

I need an expression

I need help figuring out this problem

Do You first multiple 5x2 then add 4 or do you add 4+5 and multiply by 2 ?

Order of operations

This is PEMDAS the Order of Operations not just adding and subtracting.

I don’t mean the types of grouping symbols. What I don’t understand is how far are parentheses the most important? I know that they go first, but is that only for actual problems...

1/3x^2

52 + 2(8) ÷ 2(2) + 3(3)

What equals 9 in order of operations

10_10_10_10=4. Can only use +-*/ and ()

Using 6 to 8 steps also using all 4 operations and parentheses

Problem: Answer:

Order of operations to equal 25 Using numbers 8,5,4,8,3

Plz work

Since you don't have parenthesis around the second xy do you do the division first because writing xy like that just means multiply? The book is showing that you multiply the xy first then divide...

the picture is a hexagon with the sides of 8,5,5,8,5,5
