Order of operations
The following are the rules for the order of operations: (i) When there are brackets in the mathematics problem, you always have to first simplify that which is placed inside brackets. (ii) Powers have the highest priority. (iii) When the problem only involves division and/or multiplication and there are no brackets, then you have to proceed from left to right. (iv) When you have to do a problem that only involves addition and/or subtraction - with no brackets - you may proceed from left to right. (v) In case of a calculation problem that involves something of everything, and there are no brackets, always first tackle the parts that require powers, division and multiplication. 1. Do the following computations without a calculator. Calculation task Answer In which order did you do your calculations?

18 6 3 = 18 (6 3) =

Exponents
Law 1 (i) (ii) 2 2 2 2 = 16 or 24 a3 a2 = a a a a a = a5 We also say a3 a2 = a3 + 2 = a5

Use am an = am+n to determine a302 a245 We can add the exponents if we multiply and the bases are the same. From am an = am+n : (i) (ii) (a3)2 = a3 a3 = a6 or a3 2 (p3)25 = p 3 25 = p75 by using law 1 (am)n = amn

2.

Law 2 (i) (ii) To simplify by cancelling out will take too long and that is why we apply law 2

We can subtract the exponents if we divide and the bases are the same. From : by cancelling Therefore any number (except 0) to power zero is equal to 1 a0 = 1 , a 0 by cancelling Therefore 3. Law 3

1. (a) What is the area of A ? (b) What is the area of B ? (c) What is the area of A+B ? (d) Area of big rectangle = l b Thus the area = 5 (5 + 2) = 5(7) = 35 square units We can also get 35 square units by doing this: 5(5 + 2) = (55) + (52)

a(a + 2) = (a a) + (a 2) = a + 2a

Factorising
You can do the converse by starting on the left hand side: then you write the common number with which everything is multiplied in front of the brackets: we say you take out a common factor: 6a 10 = 2(3a 5)

We get the result if 2(3a 5) = 2 3a 2 5 = 6a 10 Here the number in front of the brackets is multiplied with every term inside the brackets.

If : (x 3)(x + 2) =xx+x23x32 = x2 x 6 We want know what did we multiply to get x2 x 6. We multiplied (x 3)(x + 2) to get x2 x 6.

## Products (left to right)

(x 3)(x + 2) = x2 x 6
