Exponents, the second step of the order of operations.
parenthesis, exponent, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction
The order of operations is: P (parentheses) E (Exponents) M (Multiply) D (Divide) A (Add) S (Subtract)
P E M D A S
A way to remember the order of operations is to write P E M D A S on your paper.Or you can say "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally".
If you are speaking of Algebra, the order of operations is know as PEMDAS P=PARENTHESE E=EXPONETS M=MULTIPLY D=DIVIDE A=ADD S=SUBTRACT In order to solve an equation you must use this operation, if not you will not get the answer.

It means that the calculator can follow the order of operations and do the order of operations for you but, you need to know how to do them on your own too.
If you put in parentheses, you can change the order of operations in many cases, as parentheses come before everything in the order of operations.
Yes, unless all of the operations are additions, or all of them are multiplication. Otherwise, changing the order will change the result. The order of operations is determined by parentheses, or if none are present, by the PEDMAS sequence.The order in which mathematical operations must be done has the acronym PEDMAS or PEMDAS. PEDMAS or PEMDAS, no matter how you spell it, gives the correct order for mathematical operations: 1. P - Parentheses, 2. E - Exponents, MD - Multiplication and Division, AS - Addition and Subtraction.
