Operations and Algebraic Thinking
CCSS Math: 5.OA.A.1 – Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
2 + 2 x 2 + 2 x 2 – 2 x 2 =
I was absolutely astonished that so many people had got the answer wrong. You can find the answer below if you are one of the many who need a little brushing up on how the order of operations work.
The calculator follows the standard order of operations taught by most algebra books – Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction. When using this calculator you will see a step-by-step solution instead of just the answer.
STEPS FOR ORDER OF OPERATIONS
Step 1 : Do operations in parentheses or (brackets) and other grouping symbols first.
Step 2 : Simplify orders(powers and square Roots), working from left to right.
Step 3 : Do multiplication and division operations from left to right.
Step 4 : Do addition and subtraction operations from left to right
