## Introduction

Order Of Operations- what are they?! Well, order of operations are pretty much the way we solve problems with more than one operation in them. Let's take a look at an example to understand this better:

## Example...

So, let's say that we have 5+3x5-16/2. That looks really complex, but don't worry! All we have to do is use order of operations:

- Divide
- (left to right)
- Multiply
- Add
- (left to right)
- Subtract

That means that we have to divide or multiply and add or subtract depending on which comes first from left to right!

5+3x5-16/2=

5+15-16/2=

5+15-8

20-8=

12

5+15-8

20-8=

12

I know that at first it is hard to understand all of this, but trust me, it gets so much easier once you've practiced this thoroughly!
