Using Order of Operations helps us decide which part of a problem to solve first. For example, in this problem, do you add 9 + 5 first or multiply 5 x 2 first? 9 + 5 x 2 Do you get the same answer either way? Order of Operations

PowerPoint Presentation:

9 + 5 x 2 If you add 9 + 5 first, then multiply by 2, your final answer is 28. If you multiply 5 x 2 first, then add 9, your final answer is 19. Which answer is correct? Order of Operations

PowerPoint Presentation:

9 + 5 x 2 Answer: 19 How do you know to multiply first? Does it work that way every time? Yes! If you use Order of Operations, you will follow the same steps for every problem and arrive at the correct answer. Order of Operations

PowerPoint Presentation:

We will use PEMDAS to help us remember the Order of Operations. P arentheses E xponents M ultiplication D ivision A ddition S ubtraction PEMDAS or or

PowerPoint Presentation:

First, solve every operation in P arentheses. Second, solve every E xponent. Third, solve M ultiplication and D ivision depending on which comes first left to right . Ex 1) 3 x 6 / 2 Multiply first, then divide. Ex 2) 10 / 2 x 3 Divide first, then multiply. PEMDAS

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fourth, solve A ddition and S ubtraction depending on which comes first left to right . Ex 1) 5 + 6 - 2 Add first, then subtract. Ex 2) 12 - 1 + 3 Subtract first, then add. Let’s try one together! PEMDAS

PowerPoint Presentation:

Keep PEMDAS in mind! First, solve everything in P arentheses. Our new problem says: Example 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

Example 1 There are no E xponents in the problem, so we can skip that step. Next, we M ultiply or D ivide. Last, we A dd or S ubtract.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Let’s try another one! We can skip the P arentheses step. First, solve the E xponent. Example 2

PowerPoint Presentation:

We skip M ultiplication and D ivision. Next, we S ubtract, since subtraction comes before addition in the problem. Last, we A dd. Example 2

PowerPoint Presentation:

Now it’s your turn! Don’t forget to use PEMDAS! Check your work: Answer: O Practice 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

Let’s try one more practice problem! Check your work: Answer: 12 Practice 2
