Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you'll learn how to simplify expressions using the order of operations or PEMDAS. By starting with the operations inside parentheses, then handling exponents, followed by multiplication and division, and finally ending with addition and subtraction, you can avoid common mistakes and get the right answer every time. Remembering the acronym PEMDAS can help you keep the order straight, ensuring that you always follow the right steps in the right order.
