# Calculator 2nd power and order of evaluation

### 6^2-(2 * 7 + 4^2) = 6

Spelled result in words is six.### Calculation steps

- Exponentiation: 6 ^ 2 = 36
- Multiple: 2 * 7 = 14
- Exponentiation: 4 ^ 2 = 16
- Add: the result of step No. 2 + the result of step No. 3 = 14 + 16 = 30
- Subtract: the result of step No. 1 - the result of step No. 4 = 36 - 30 = 6

**order of operations**. The most common mnemonics for remembering this order of operations are:

**PEMDAS**- Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

**BEDMAS**- Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

**BODMAS**- Brackets, Of or Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

**GEMDAS**- Grouping Symbols - brackets (){}, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

Be careful, always do

**multiplication and division**before

**addition and subtraction**. Some operators (+ and -) and (* and /) has the same priority and then must evaluate from left to right.
