## Introduction

In this lesson, you will learn about the P.E.M.D.A.S Method. This method is used when simplifying algebraic expression. This topic will teach what each letter stands for and a few tips and tricks on how to remember and order P.E.M.D.A.S. So let's get started!## P.E.M.D.A.S

P.E.M.D.A.S. stands for the following:- P is for Parenthesis
- E is for Exponents
- M is for Multiplication
- (left to right)
- D is for Division
- A is for Addition
- (left to right)
- S is for Subtraction

The best way to remember P.E.M.D.A.S. is by remembering the following sentence:

**P**lease

**E**xcuse

**M**y

**D**ear

**A**unt

**S**ally

Now, that you know what P.E.M.D.A.S. stands for, let's solve an algebraic expression using P.E.M.D.A.S.

(5 x 3)+14/7-6

According to P.E.M.D.A.S. Parenthesis comes first.

(5 x 3)+14/7-6

15+14/7-6

Next, is exponents but since we don't have any exponents in this, we'll just move on to Multiplication and Division from Left to Right. We only have division.

(5x3)+14/7-6

15+14/7-6

15+2-6

Now, we just have to add or subtract from left to right.

(5x3)+14/7-6

15+14/7-6

15+2-6

17-6
