In Problems 7–10, insert parentheses, brackets, and/or braces to make
each equation true.
7. 17 – 6 + 1 = 10
9. 5 &times; 6 – 1 + 3 = 28
8. 8 – 8 &times; 2 + 3 = 0
10. 5 + 4 – 5 + 3 &times; 8 &divide; 2 = 4

Using the Order of
Operations
note Students use the order
of operations to solve problems.
In Problems 1–5, solve the equation using the order
1. 20 – 16 &divide; 4 =
2. (19 – 1) &divide; (3 &times; 2) =
3. 3 &times; 7 – (2 + 5) =
4. [(3 + 4) &times; 2] – (1 + 9) =
5. [6 + (3 + 4) &times; (3 – 1)] &divide; 5 =
In Problems 6–9, insert parentheses, brackets, and/or braces to make each
equation true.
6. 1 + 8 &times; 4 = 36
7. 10 + 2 – 6 + 3 = 3
8. 2 + 3 &times; 10 – 3 = 35
9. 4 &times; 8 – 4 + 1 = 12
10. Write an equation that means “Multiply 8 by the sum of 4 and 2.”

Understanding the Order
of Operations
note Students use the order
of operations to solve problems.
In Problems 1–4, solve the equation using the order of
operations.
1. 12 + 4 &times; 6 &divide; 3 =
3. (19 – 1) &times; (7 – 6) =
2. 15 – [(10 + 26) &divide; 4] =
4. 2 &times; (8 – 4) &times; 10 &divide; 8 =
In Problems 5–8, insert parentheses, brackets, and/or braces to make each
equation true.
5. 8 + 28 &divide; 4 = 15
6. 5 &times; 9 – 6 + 2 = 17
7. 20 – 3 + 1 &times; 3 = 8
8. 9 – 2 &times; 4 + 6 = 70
9.For the following problem, use grouping symbols to write an equation
that represents the situation. Then solve the problem.
A florist planted pots of tulip bulbs, with 5 bulbs in each pot. He planted
