**The order of operations is a convention used to determine which operations are performed first. In every math exercise that combines more than one operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.), each operation must be performed in a specific order:**

- Parentheses
- Powers and Roots
- Multiplication and division (from left to right)
- Addition and subtraction (from left to right)

- When a type of operation is repeated in an exercise, they must be solved in order from left to right.
