## PEMDAS Rules Practice 1 Solutions

Below are the solutions and answers to the problems in PEMDAS Rules Practice 1. Notice that I have color coded the solution to guide you which operation results to which answer. I have also varied the notations like / and ÷ to familiarize you with both of them. In addition, I have also included operations on fractions with expressions in the numerator and the denominator. In a fraction whose numerator and/or denominator contains one or more operations , you have to simplify first both the numerator and the denominator before dividing. The methods in calculating fractions are shown in numbers 7, 9 and 10.

## PEMDAS Rules and Operations on Real Numbers

Now that you have already learned the four fundamental operations on real numbersaddition, subtraction, multiplication, division – it is time to combine these operations into a single problem. In the Philippine Civil Service Examination, most of the problems on operations on real numbers have at least two or more operations involved.  If you can recall, we call these operations MDAS in the elementary grades and later and PE making it PEMDAS. PEMDAS is the acronym for Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction. This is basically the order of operations when you calculate an arithmetic problem involving two or more operations.

PEMDAS RULES

Calculate in the following order.

1. the expressions inside the Parentheses.
2. the expression with Exponents.
3. If no operation separates Multiplication and Division, perform from left hand side to right whichever comes first.
4. If no operation separates Addition and Subtraction, perform from left hand side to right whichever comes first.  Continue Reading
