First we solve math inside brackets. They have the highest order. example: 2+3*(5+4)  first we solve 5+4 and than multiply it by 3 and finally add 2 after brackets multiplication and division have highest order. We solve them before we solve summing and subtraction. 3+4*5   first we do 4*5 1-5+6/3*5   here it doesnt matter if we first divide 6 by 3 and than multiply by 5 or we multiply 6 and 5 and than divide by 3. They have same order and result will be the same. Finaly subtraction and addition is done.
