### PhraseEdit

**PEMDAS**

- (acronym) A mnemonic used by mathematics students to remember the order of operations: parentheses, then exponents, then multiplication and division, then addition and subtraction.

#### Usage notesEdit

This mnemonic leads many to the notion that multiplication is precedent to division, and addition to subtraction; however, these are within the pairs equal in precedence and resolved from left to right.
