What is order of operations?

The order of operations is a set of guidelines created to ensure that all math calculations are solved the same way.

For example, say you are given the expression: 3 x 5 + 9 x 2.

If I solve it strictly from left to right (multiply 3 and 5, then add 9, then multiply by 2), I would get a solution of 48.  But if you solve by multiplying 3 x 5 and 9 x 2 first, and then add, you would get a solution of 33. So which answer is correct?

Well, thanks to a standard known as order of operations, the correct solution is 33. This ensures that everyone follows the same order when solving problems, and solutions remain consistent.
