# How do you multiply Pemdas?

## How do you multiply Pemdas?

The order of operations can be remembered by the acronym PEMDAS, which stands for: parentheses, exponents, multiplication and division from left to right, and addition and subtraction from left to right. There are no parentheses in this problem, so start with exponents. Then, multiply and divide from left to right.

### Do you multiply parentheses first?

You can alternatively apply PEMDAS as schools do today: Simplify everything inside the parentheses first, then exponents, then all multiplication and division from left to right in the order both operations appear, then all addition and subtraction from left to right in the order both operations appear.

**Do you add or multiply first in an equation?**

Order of operations tells you to perform multiplication and division first, working from left to right, before doing addition and subtraction.

**Why do you multiply before adding?**

Students should have answered something in their own words that gets across the concept: Multiplication and division are done before addition and subtraction in order to convert groups of items into subtotals of like items that can be combined for the total.

## Does Bodmas and Pemdas give the same answer?

BODMAS stands for Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction. BIDMAS and PEMDAS do exactly the same thing but using different words. BODMAS explains the “Order of Operations” in maths and BIDMAS AND PEMDAS do exactly the same thing but using slightly different words.

### Which comes first addition or multiplication?

Order of operations tells you to perform multiplication and division first, working from left to right, before doing addition and subtraction. After computing within the grouping symbols, divide or multiply from left to right and then subtract or add from left to right.

**How do you teach Pemdas?**

PEMDAS: Order of Operations

- Do any work within parentheses ( ) or other grouping symbols [ ] first.
- Do any work with exponents (powers) or roots.
- Do any multiplication or division in order from left to right.
- Do any addition and subtraction in order from left to right.
