What is the rules of PEMDAS?

The rules of PEMDAS are 1. Parenthesis anything in them you do first. 2. Exponents those little numbers next to the number telling you to multiply the number by itself a certain number of times 3. Multiplication and Division whichever comes first and 4. Addition and Subtraction whichever comes first. If there is an exponent next to parenthesis but there is no number that means the answer to the parenthesis has to be the thing that the exponent is next to. All of the rules apply inside of the parenthesis as well. If there is a number next to the parenthesis not followed by a symbol multiply the answer to the parenthesis by that number.

How do you determine whether a parenthesis or a square bracket is used when graphing an inequality on a number line?

A parenthesis is used for a number which is an 'end' of an inequality but is not itself included. For example, if the inequality reads "x>3", there is an opening parenthesis on the hash-mark labelled '3', and the number line is shaded to the right. If the number IS included a bracket is used. So for -3 is less than or equal to x but less than 3, there is a [ on -3, and a ) on the 3, and the number line is shaded between -3 and 3.
