Unformatted text preview: Why is it important that you follow the steps rather than solve the problem from left to right? If we do not follow the rule and try to solve from left to right, we’ll end up the wrong answer. For example: Left to right 3(3  2) + 8 9 – 2 + 8 7 – 2 + 8 5 + 8 =13 Order of operation: 3(3  2) +8 3(1) + 8 3 + 8 =11 I hope I got this right....
