Write math expression using PEMDAS
by: Staff


The answer:

PEMDAS is an abbreviation for a six step process. Each letter stands for a different mathematical procedure:

P = Parentheses

E = Exponents

M = Multiplication

D = Division

A = Addition

S = Subtraction


The order of the letters tells you which mathematical operation to complete first, second, . . . etc.

Complete 1st = Parentheses

Complete 2nd = Exponents

Complete 3rd = Multiplication

Complete 4th = Division

Complete 5th = Addition

Complete 6th = Subtraction


>>> the answer:

One possible answer to the question is:

(2² + 5)/3 + 4 + 1 = 8


A step-by-step recap of the solution is shown below:


(2² + 5)/3 + 4 + 1 = 8

= (4 + 5)/3 + 4 + 1 = 8

= (9)/3 + 4 + 1 = 8

= 3 + 4 + 1 = 8

= 8
