For each expression, tell which operation would be completed first, and why.
1. (14 + 2) - 3 + 1 The addition in the Parentheses would come first, 14 + 2
2. 12 + (1 + 24) - 5 The addition in the Parentheses would come first, 1 + 24
3. 12 - [(5 + 2) + (16 - 4)] There are two things in parentheses. 5 + 2 is first left to right.
4. 18 - (5 - 2) + {12 - [1 + (7 - 2)] - (3 + 1)} There are 3 things in parentheses. 5-2 is first.
5. 8 + (15 - 3) The subtraction in the Parentheses is first, 15 - 3
6. 34 - (5 + 35) ÷ 5 The addition in the Parentheses is first, 5 + 35
7. (62 - 4) + (9 - 7) x 3 There are two things in Parentheses, 62 - 4 is first
8. (9 + 5) - 16 ÷ 4 The addition in the Parentheses would come first, 9 + 5
9. 18 - 1 + 7 x 2 There are no Parentheses so Multiplication would be first, 7 x 2
10. 9 x 7 + (7 - 3) The subtraction in the Parentheses would come first, 7 - 3

Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2" as 2 x (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 x (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
