16. MathDrills

It should actually be something like: P E MD AS As whatever acronym you use, you have to remember that Multiplication and Division are done from left to right. One doesn't come before the other unless there are other circumstances (e.g. parentheses). Same with Addition and Subtraction. In different parts of the world different acronyms are used BEDMAS, I know is used in Canada and PEMDAS is often used in the U.S. Notice in BEDMAS and PEMDAS that the M and D come in different orders, but they are correct if you remember what I said above.
