How do you simplify #6 ÷ (17 - 11) times 14# using order of operations?
See a solution process below:
First, execute the operation within the Parenthesis;
Next, execute the Multiplication and Division operations from left to right:
It could be written as
Just use the BODMAS principle giving more preference to division than to multiplication.
Order of operations follows this order:
- P (Parentheses)
- E (Exponents)
- MD (Multiplication and Division - left to right)
- AS (Addition and Subtraction - left to right)
Or PEMDAS for short.
So when we see:
We know do the Parentheses first. So lets solve the part inside the parentheses:
There aren't any Exponents in this equation, so we can skip that part. But there is multiplication and division! So we will solve the those parts (don't forget: Go left to right! )
