An "operation" is a mathematical action such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. When solving mathematical expressions, it is important to follow the order of operations--steps that should be followed to arrive at a correct answer.

Mathematical equations should be solved from left to right. Then solve in the following order using PEMDAS:

**P **Solve what appears in** parentheses** first

**E **Compute the **exponents **(roots) next

**M ****Multiply** from left to right

**D ****Divide** from left to right

**A ****Add **from left to right

**S ****Subtract** from left to right
