Operations are the actions taken to solve math problems: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, grouping (placing values in parentheses), and exponentiation (multiplying the same number to itself a certain number of times). Order of Operations was developed to make sure operations in a problem are completed in a particular order to achieve the correct result.

**The Order of Operations (PEMDAS) **

**P**arentheses**E**xponents**M**ultiplication**D**ivision**A**ddition**S**ubtraction

Multiplication does not outrank Division, and Addition does not outrank Subtraction. Instead, the order is determined by what operation appears first going from left to right.
