What is the order of operations for solving a math problem?
Parentheses: Parentheses are used to make sure that certain operations are completed first. Anything inside the parentheses is done first. Exponents: Exponents are used to show that a number should be multiplied by itself a certain number of times. Multiplication and Division: When two operations with the same precedence (like multiplication and division) are used in the same equation, you should start with the one on the left and go to the right.
