4 x 4 +4 x 4 + 4 - 4 x 4 =do I do this one in order or do the multiplication first
my husband says to do in order, I say do the multiplication first
PedmasParentheses firstExponents (ie Powers and Square Roots, etc.)Multiplication and Division (left-to-right)Addition and Subtraction (left-to-right)
Yes you multiply first
Remember P.E.M.D.A.S! :)
Multiplication. You have to do the order of operations.Please(Parentheses)Excuse(Exponents)My(Multiplication)Dear(Division)Aunt(Adding)Sally(Subtraction)
If there are no parenthesis you multiply and divide first and add and subtract second. The problem would become 16 + 16 + 4 - 16 which would give you a final result of 20.
follow the BODMASBrackets Of Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction.
do all multiplication first and then the addition and then subtraction.
the way im learning it in school is BEDMAS (Brackets,Exponents,Division,Multiplication,Division)
