Order of Operations in Mathematics


24 ÷ 2 ( 2 + 2) = ?

a) 48

b) 8

c) 3

The correct ANSWER is ⇒ c) 3

The standard accepted order of precedence is as follows:

  1. Parenthesis operations are performed first.
  2. If there is an exponential or radical number in the question, the second step is to solve these operations.
  3. Multiplication and division should be done.
  4.  The fourth is addition and subtraction.

Finally, in multiple operations that need to be followed, the operation process will proceed from left to right.
