think of "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally"

P is for paranthesis first

E is for exponents

M and D are for multiply and divide, they go in order as whatever comes first from left to right whether its multiply or divide

A and S are for adding and subtracting. same as with multiply and divide they go in the order they appear on the problem

from left to right

I know that I just don't know how to

break it down or the answer.

must be beyond me the teacher gave it

to us for homework for extra credit

and we never did anything like it

before
