Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If PEMDAS was used instead of SADMEP, the literal equation may be harder to solve for the variable you are wanting to solve for because sometimes you need to use addition or subtraction before using multiplication or division in your problem. Knowing this, the variable would you would still have the variable and would not be able to solve it.
