In solving an equation with more than one operation you must first add then divide?

Multiplication and division come first, then addition and subtraction. For example: 4 + 2 X 3 + 6 = 16 First you multiply 2 X 3, to get 6, and then you add them, left to right 4 + 6 + 6 = 16. The answer IS NOT 54 and the answer IS NOT 30. The same rule applies with division; division comes before addition or substraction. If there is both division and multiplication and/or addition and subtraction, you resolve the multiplication and division left to right first, then resolve the addition and subtraction left to right. It is generally better to user parentheses to illustrate exactly what you mean. For example, the above equation would be easier read if it was written 4 + (2 X 3) + 6. Or, if you really had wanted the addition first, (4 + 2) X (3 + 6). Then it is quicker and easier for the reader to see what is going on in equation.

When solving inequalities with multiple operations addition and subtraction are undone before multiplication and division?

Your question is a little confusing. If you are asking which gets done first ... addition/subtraction or multiplication/division ... the multiplication/division is done first. In other words, in 1 + 4 / 2, you divide 4 by 2 first, then add 1. So the answer is 3.
