The Order of Operation is a process that needs to be followed in a particular order. The mathematical order of operations contains some or all of the following in operations in this order: Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction I remember learning “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” or “PEMDAS”, to remember the order. P = Parentheses, E = Exponents, MD = Multiplication and Division, and AS = Addition and Subtraction. Math Example: Simplify 2 + 5 x 0 If the order is followed: 2 + 5 x 0 = 2 + 0 = 2 and 4 + 5 x 0 = 4 + 0 = 4 2 + 5 x 0 ≠ 4 + 5 x 0
