2. Evaluate all exponents (powers).
3. Evaluate all multiplication and division in order from left to right.
4. Evaluate all addition and subtraction from left to right.
Examples:
A.
3 + 4(6-3) – 2
B.
2  4(5)
5+
2
Let
C.
8(3)&sup2; - 12  2  3
x = 8, y = 5
400 – x&sup2;y + 6y
D.
Evaluate the following. Show your work.
1. 3 + 2 (3) +5
5.
24  2  3
2. (6 + 4)3 – 3
6. 15  3(5) – 4&sup2;
3. (6 + 4)(3 – 3)
4. 29 – 2(9 - 4)
7. 4(11 + 7) - 9  8
8.
2  3(4)
53
Evaluate the following if v = 5, x = 3, a = 7. Remember to use the Order of Operations.
1. (v +1) (v&sup2; – v + 1)
2.
x&sup2;  x  6
x3
3. a  7(v  3)  3
2
4.
v&sup2;x – 1 + 5(v – x)
Use (parentheses) and/or [brackets] to make the following statements TRUE. Show all your work.
first try
second try
A.
3 + 6 ● 2 – 1 = 14
3 + 6 ● 2 – 1 = 14
B.
6 – 2 ● 4 + 3 = 28
C.
8 + 4 + 9 – 3 + 2 = 20
8 + 4 + 9 – 3 + 2 = 20
D.
14 – 3&sup2; + 10 – 7 = 8
14 – 3&sup2; + 10 – 7 = 8
6 – 2 ● 4 + 3 = 28
third try
3 + 6 ● 2 – 1 = 14
6 – 2 ● 4 + 3 = 28
8 + 4 + 9 – 3 + 2 = 20
14 – 3&sup2; + 10 – 7 = 8
Please find and correct the error that Mrs. Hochstetler made in the problem below:
18 – 2 + 3&sup2; - 7
error: __________________________________________
