## Order of Operations Quiz Answers

1) 1 x 5 + 9 = ?

Step 1: 1 x 5 = 5

=5 + 9

Step 2: 5 + 9 = 14

=14

2) 1 + 4 x 5 - 3 = ?

Step 1: 4 x 5 = 20

= 1 + 20 - 3

Step 2: 1 + 20 = 21

= 21 - 3

Step 3: 21 - 3 = 18

= 18

3) 23 - 5 + 7 x 8 = ?

Step 1: 7 x 8 = 56

= 23 - 5 + 56

Step 2: 23 - 5 = 18

= 18 + 56

Step 3: 18 + 56 = 74

=74

4) 7 - 5 + 8 x 4 + 9 x 3 = ?

Step 1: 8 x 4 = 32

= 7 - 5 + 32 + 9 x 3

Step 2: 9 x 3 = 27

= 7 - 5 + 32 + 27

Step 3: 7 - 5 = 2

= 2 + 32 + 27

Step 4: 2 + 32 = 34

= 34 + 27

Step 5: 34 + 27 = 61

= 61

5) 7 + 6 + 8 x 4 - 2 = ?

Step 1: 8 x 4 = 32

= 7 + 6 + 32 - 2

Step 2: 7 + 6 = 13

= 13 + 32 - 2

Step 3: 13 + 32 = 35

= 35 - 2

Step 4: 35 - 2 = 33

= 33

6) 1 + 2 + 3 x 4 = ?

Step 1: 3 x 4 = 12

= 1 + 2 + 12

Step 2: 1 + 2 = 3

= 3 + 12

Step 3: 3 + 12 = 15

= 15

7) 4 x 3 - 5 - 6 = ?

Step 1: 4 x 3 = 12

= 12 - 5 - 6

Step 2: 12 - 5 = 7

= 7 - 6

Step 3: 7 - 6 = 1

= 1

8) 34 + 9 x 0 + 8 = ?

Step 1: 9 x 0 = 0

= 34 + 0 + 8

Step 2: 34 + 0 = 34

= 34 + 8

Step 3: 34 + 8 = 42

= 42

9) 12 x 5 - 6 x 0 + 9 - 8 = ?

Step 1: 12 x 5 = 60

= 60 - 6 x 0 + 9 - 8

Step 2: 6 x 0 = 0

= 60 - 0 + 9 - 8

Step 3: 60 - 0 = 60

= 60 - 9 - 8

Step 4: 60 - 9 = 51

= 51 - 8

Step 5: 51 - 8 = 43

= 43

10) 8 x 5 - 9 - 7 x 4 + 5 = ?

Step 1: 8 x 5 = 40

= 40 - 9 - 7 x 4 + 5

Step 2: 7 x 4 = 28

= 40 - 9 - 28 + 5

Step 3: 40 - 9 = 31

= 31 - 28 + 5

Step 4: 31 - 28 = 3

= 3 + 5

Step 5: 3 + 5 = 8

= 8
