Go from left to right performing all the multiplication and division as you come across it, so divide 6 by 2 to get 3, and multiply that by 11 to get The whole idea is just to follow the rule: Now we can try to solve one with parenthesis and exponents. What if you are given an equation like the one below? Just simplify it in small steps, using the order of operations at all times. Remember, the first step is Parenthesis. That comes out to Provide those who help with as much information as possible.
