### When solving an algebraic equation which operands do you perform first?

In algebra, you perform the operations inside parentheses first.

### What is the diffrance between algebra and equation?

Equations are something you do to make something equal something else to find the missing variables. Algebra is the operations that you perform to find those missing variables.

### Why was algebra an important invention to Islam?

Algebra was not an important invention to Islam as a religion. It was an important invention in mathematics that was discovered by a Muslim (Al-Khwarizmi). Algebra is important in mathematics because it establishes the ability to perform mathematical operations even if some or all of the quantities are unknown.

### What can you use to control the order of operation in a formula?

The use of parentheses allows you to control, or change, the regular order of operations. For example, if you have the expression 4 + 2 * 3, under the normal order of operations, you would perform the multiplication before the addition. To perform the addition first, you just add parenthesis so the expression reads (4 + 2) * 3 instead.

### When is it important for a matrix to be square?

In the context of matrix algebra there are more operations that one can perform on a square matrix. For example you can talk about the inverse of a square matrix (or at least some square matrices) but not for non-square matrices.
