parenthesis. For example, ( 4 + 5 ) - 2

BOMDAS Brackets (parenthesis), Of, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction

You do it wrong. With out order of operations, the same math problem could have several different answers. In math, there is only one answer.

Follow the algebraic order of operations. I see no parenthesis (grouping), so it will be 16 + 25 + 7 - 4 + 33 = 41+ 7 - 4 + 33 = 48 - 4 + 33 = 44 + 33 = 77 be aware that non-scientific calculators such as those found at 99 cent stores do not follow the algebraic order of operations. Scientific calculators do.

If you are asking 'in what order are arithmetic operations performed'; One useful mnemonic is BEDMAS. This order is Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. Sometimes called Order of Operations.

Order of Operations is like when you have a problem i always use PEMDAS it means parenthesis, expoents, mulitipication, divide, addition, Subtraction follow it.

the question in the parenthesis comes first you do the question in the parenthesis then go back and do the other half thats not in parenthesis

parenthesis. For example, ( 4 + 5 ) - 2

Based on the order of operations (PEMDAS), it states all inside the parenthesis goes first. For example, if you had the problem (1+3) x 4, you would do the 1+3 first, then multiply it by 4.

At the top of the list. Parenthesis (or brackets) are dealt with first.

yes

If there are any parenthesis, do operations within parenthesis first. Then calculate all powers, from right to left. Then calculate all multiplications and divisions, from left to right. Then calculate all sums and differences, from left to right.
