Definition

The presence of different grouping symbols and operations makes math problems more challenging. With that, grouping symbols are characterized as an organization in algebraic problems that contains multiple groups. 

  • Parentheses ( )  – these are used to group numbers or variables. Always perform first the operation inside the parentheses. 
  • Brackets [ ] and braces { }Brackets and braces also are used to group numbers or variables. In general, they are used after parentheses. Parentheses are to be used first, then brackets, and then braces: {[( )]}. 

Note: Improper use of grouping symbols may result to wrong answer. 

Summary

ORDER OF OPERATIONS 

  • Operation is a mathematical process. There are four fundamental operations in mathematics namely: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. 
  • PEMDAS is an acronym made to help remember the order of operations when dealing with mathematical expressions. 
  • PEMDAS stands for Parentheses, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition or Subtraction. 

Trivia: 

  • In the UK they say BODMAS (Brackets,Orders,Divide,Multiply,Add,Subtract) 
  • In Canada they say BEDMAS (Brackets,Exponents,Divide,Multiply,Add,Subtract). 
  • It all means the same thing! It doesn’t matter how you remember it, just so long as you get it right.

Example

Evaluate: 7 + (6 × 52 + 3) 

  • Start with numbers and operations inside the Parentheses

         7 + (6 × 52 + 3) 

  • Evaluate 52  first because it has an Exponent. 5is equal to 25. 

         7+ (6 × 25 + 3) 

  • Multiply 6 and 25. The product is 150. 

          7+(150 + 3) 

  • There is no need to divide numbers. Proceed with Addition.  

         7+  (153) = 160 

          Thus, 7 + (6 × 52 + 3) = 160
