*What is the correct order of operations for solving equations?*

Please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operations for further information.

In the answers, they show multiplication before division. It is PE**D**MAS, never PEMDAS!

Iâ€™ve never seen the order of operations as PEDMAS instead of PEMDAS until this post.

Did some more googling. Apparently PE**M**DAS is used in USA. Itâ€™s also what Khan Academy teaches. Guess we should stick with PEMDAS as the answer. Apparently Multiplication/Division order doesnâ€™t matter. Those who get the question wrong the first time can just memorize the â€ścorrectâ€ť answer.
