BCS Order Of Operations

When solving equations the order in which the operations are performed is critical.

The general order of operations is:

P = Parentheses
E = Exponents
M = Multiplication
D = Division
A = Addition
S = Subtraction

To remember the acronym (PEMDAS) I repeat the following sentence Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.
