To compute this, we have to apply the order of operation known as PEMDAS.
In PEMDAS, division comes before addition. So we divide first. Since 2-:2=1, we would have:
And then, add them.
Therefore, `2+2-:2=3` .
In this problem, we would have to use PEMDAS which stands for the order you would have to do the problem in: Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.
In this case, we are dealing with Division and Addition. And, division comes first.
So, we would have to divide.
`2+2/2 = 2+1`
`2+1 = 3`
TIP: One way you can remember PEMDAS is the acronym ... "(P)lease (E)xcuse (M)y (D)ear (A)unt (S)ally.
Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction
Since we divide before we add, we divide 2/2 first instead of adding 2+2 first.
This gets us to 2+1 = 3.
To solve this problem, it is helpful to use PEMDAS. This means
In the order the words go in, is the order you should solve the problem.
Therefore, you first divide 2/2 to get 1 since Division comes before the word Addition in PEMDAS.
Then you add. 2+1=3
The final answer is 3.
Use BODMAS which is
B Brackets first
O Orders (ie Powers and Square Roots, etc.)
So, answer is 3.
