**Do you do brackets or parentheses first?**

Operation in brackets (parentheses) are done first. If there are nested brackets (brackets within brackets) then the innermost brackets are done first. Then exponentiation. Then multiplication and division, from left to right.

### Do parentheses disappear after?

In an equation with one variable raised to the first power, you will only have one solution, not two. In multiplication, you can multiply these in any order and it will give you the same answer, so you do not have to get rid of or keep the parenthesis part right away.

**What is the correct order of operations?**

In the United States, the acronym PEMDAS is common. It stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication/Division, Addition/Subtraction. PEMDAS is often expanded to the mnemonic “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally”.

## Does multiplication always come first?

Order of operations tells you to perform multiplication and division first, working from left to right, before doing addition and subtraction. Next, add and subtract from left to right. (Note that addition is not necessarily performed before subtraction.)

**What is the correct order of Pemdas?**

We can remember the order using PEMDAS: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division (from left to right), Addition and Subtraction (from left to right).

### Do you use the order of operations when there is no parenthesis?

If there are multiple operations at the same level on the order of operations, move from left to right. you work like this: First notice that, there are no Parentheses or Exponents, so we move to Multiplication and Division. Within a set of parentheses, the order of operations should be followed.

**Is Pemdas or Bodmas correct?**

BODMAS works in order of brackets, orders, division/multiplication, and addition/subtraction. Brackets and orders are the same as parentheses and exponents in the basic sense. in that sense bodmas and pemdas are the very same and they are both right.
