The order of operations for complicated calculations is as follows: 1) Perform operations within parentheses. 2) Multiply and divide, whichever comes first, from left to right. 3) Add and subtract, whichever comes first, from left to right. Example: 1 + 20 × (6 + 2) ÷ 2 = 1 + 20 × 8 ÷ 2 = 1 + 160 ÷ 2 = 1 + 80 = 81. Students, Solve: 180 * 5 (3 + 5 – 4) 180 * 5 (3 + 5 – 4) = 180 * 5 (8  4) = 180 * 5 (4) = 180 * 20 = 3600...
