Because subtraction is addition and division is multiplication. So, subtraction would fall under the properties of addition and division would come under the properties of multiplication.

SADMEP is PEMDAS backwards. for SADMEP first you do subtraction or addition in the order they come in, then do division or multiplication in the order they come in, then exponents the parentatheses. SADMEP is used in equations for sure and inepualities i think.

Multiplication and division come first, then addition and subtraction. For example: 4 + 2 X 3 + 6 = 16 First you multiply 2 X 3, to get 6, and then you add them, left to right 4 + 6 + 6 = 16. The answer IS NOT 54 and the answer IS NOT 30. The same rule applies with division; division comes before addition or substraction. If there is both division and multiplication and/or addition and subtraction, you resolve the multiplication and division left to right first, then resolve the addition and subtraction left to right. It is generally better to user parentheses to illustrate exactly what you mean. For example, the above equation would be easier read if it was written 4 + (2 X 3) + 6. Or, if you really had wanted the addition first, (4 + 2) X (3 + 6). Then it is quicker and easier for the reader to see what is going on in equation.

You don't. You can check addition with subtraction or subtraction with addition, since subtraction is the opposite of addition. Similary, you can check division with multiplication, or vice versa.

P.E.M.D.A.S is how i remember it Parentheses Exponent Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction also, whichever comes first in the problem goes first, but this only works with multiplication and division and also addition and subtraction but only multiplication with division and addition with subtraction

Your question is a little confusing. If you are asking which gets done first ... addition/subtraction or multiplication/division ... the multiplication/division is done first. In other words, in 1 + 4 / 2, you divide 4 by 2 first, then add 1. So the answer is 3.

That would be 16. You do the division first, then the addition.

Solving this equation for x actually requires subtraction and division rather than addition and division.

It doesn't matter!

Yes. Multiplication and division first, addition and subtraction second.

Division

An operation on a series of numbers is when you use amongst others addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Mathematics decided the order of operations is to work out the sums in the brackets first, then exponents, then multiplications and division and finally addition and subtraction.

hi Division is just the alternative for phylum when referring to plants and fungi.

Follow PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction), but do what is in the brackets first.

the inverse of addition is subtraction and the inverse of multiplication is division. Of course, multiplication is just repeated addition so division is just repeated subtraction!
