PEDMAS Poster – Order of Operations Process
Order of Operations Poster:
PEDMAS is an acronym. It stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition & Subtraction. It is the order in which you do the operations when solving an algorithm.
e.g 6-(2+2) = 6-4 (since you do the bit in the brackets first)
then you go 6-4=2
If you simply work left to right, you get a completely different answer.
