depends on what you're doing with them

#### Explanation:

if you are using different components of BEDMAS, then the order of the numbers is important.

$6 + 5 - 8 \cdot 2 = - 5$

$2 + 6 - 5 \cdot 8 = - 32$

$8 + 2 - 6 \cdot 5 = - 20$

and so on

Order of operations matters.

#### Explanation:

Take for example:

$3 \times 2 + 6 = 12$

You do multiplication first, then addition. So if we just change the numbers, you get something like this:

$6 \times 2 + 3 = 15$

Order of operations matters!
