    The order of operation is: PEMDAS

    meaning that you do anything in parenthesis first, exponents 2nd, multiplication/division 3rd, and finally addition/subtraction. Moving left to right

    you need to memorize multiplication tables. For basic example, think of multiplying like taking a number and adding it a certain number of times.

    5*4 = 20, you can think of this as 5+5+5+5 =20 or 4+4+4+4+4 = 20. The five is added 4 times and the 4 is added 5 times. It doesn't matter which way you approach the problem.

    yes because multiplication and addition are "commutative" meaning that you can do it in any order. But watch out for division and subtracting as different rules apply
