You act like this is college level math.

This was an easy problem.

P - Parentheses
E - Exponents
M - Multiplication
D - Division
S - Subtraction

To make it more accurate, you want to pair addition and subtraction together, and multiplication and division together.

Parentheses

Exponents

Multiplication
Division

Subtraction

Rather than doing addition before subtraction or multiplication before division, you go in order.

I'm certain you already know this, but I just felt like making it more accurate.

Let's see if the JV community are smart enough.

It's simple. What number is equal to this?
5 + 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = ?

Answer in the thread until I have gotten a moderator to make a poll.
It's 15, If you do order of operations you would do PEMDAS, And multiplication comes befor addition.

Yes, and if one of the pairs is left (MD or AS) then it doesn't matter what order it goes in.

39. It's simple Bodmas.
Lots of people forget about it though.
Brackets, Of, Divide, Multiply, Add, Subtract.

Meaning that the 5 gets multiplied by the 0 first off and then everything is totaled.
But obviously you all knew that because it's been answered.
