PEMDAS: An Order of Operations

PEMDAS stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. It's a way of remembering the order in which to solve math problems. An easy way to remember it is to think of PEMDAS as a big boss, and the other operations as little bosses. The big boss needs to be done first! Start by solving anything in parentheses first, then work your way up the order. This will help you get the right answer to your math problems.

The acronym PEMDAS stands for Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction, which are the six operations that are used to solve mathematical equations. The term PEMDAS was coined in the late 1940s by American mathematician George Polya. The idea of PEMDAS was first suggested by German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1796.
