## What is Meant by Parentheses?

**Parentheses** or "round brackets" are the familiar ( ) symbols used in pairs to group things together or specify the order of operations in an equation.

Parentheses are represented by [{( )}]

PEMDAS is a set of rules which are followed while solving mathematical expressions.

This rule starts with **Parentheses**, and then operations are performed on the **exponents or powers**. Next, we perform operations on **multiplication or division** from left to right. Finally, operations on **addition or subtraction** are performed from left to right.

If you stick to this order of operations in the PEMDAS rule, you will always get the correct answer.

**Solved Example:**

Find the value of the given expression (8 + 4) × 2.

**Solution:**

To solve the given expression, we have to apply the PEMDAS rule.

So, according to that, first, we have to solve the expression in parentheses.

8 + 4 = 12

Now, we can rewrite our expression as, 12 × 2 = 24.

Similarly, you can try the calculator and solve the following expressions:

a) 48 - 4 × (16 ÷ 8)

b) (5 + 30 - 35) ÷ 5
