Using PEMDAS

PEMDAS (sometimes referred to as PEMDAS, BEDMAS or BODMAS) is a mathematical acronym to help you understand how calculations work.

The acronym refers to the order in which any calculation shold be done, and is typically introduced at around the 5th grade level.

The acronym stands for the following:

- P = Parentheses (Brackets)
- E = Exponents
- D = Division
- M = Multiplication
- A = Addition
- S = Subtraction

One popular way to remember the PEMDAS rule is the saying:

'Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally'.

However, the PEMDAS rule is not quite so straightforward as it seems.

If you would like help using this rule and practising it with some PEMDAS worksheets, then follow the link below.
