    Exactly right and that's really the only confusion

    No it is from left to right which would not be at the same time.

    They mean you don't do division left to right then multiplication left to right, obviously.

    I think he's just being argumentative. Obviously you go left to right if they occur at the same time...same thing as add/sub and exponets/roots.

    If anyone has anymore tough probs I found a great link to help us solve them: http://tinyurl.com/2cjyhr

    I meant rather that PEMDAS is a bit confusing because you don't always do multiplication before division. You do them in the same step and follow the left-to-right rule in regards to which operation to actually perform first.

    The USAmerican acronym for the order of operations for an equation: Parentheses, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.
