    Think "PEMDAS" What you do in order.


    P =  PARENTHESIS


    E =  EXPONENTS


    M and D = MULTIPLICATION and DIVISION FROM LEFT TO RIGHT IN ORDER THE PROBLEM IS WRITTEN.


    A and S = ADDITION and SUBTRACTION FROM LEFT TO RIGHT IN ORDER THE PROBLEM IS WRITTEN.


    EXAMPLE:  1


      6 + (5 * 6) - 3 + (12/6) =


                30                2


    6 + 30 - 3 + 2


    36 - 3 + 2 


    33 + 2 = 


    35


    EXAMPLE  2


    5^2 -5 + (2*3) / 2


    25              6/2


    25 - 5 + 3 = 


    20 + 3 = 


    23
