What you need to do is follow the 𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬. That tells you which mathematical operation you'd do first, second, and third. When you follow this correctly, you will have your answer.

The answer is 25. Pemdas says parentheses first. So 2+3=5. The equation is now (5) • 4 + 5. Well multiplication comes before addition. So 5•4=20. So we’re at 20 + 5. Well what does that equal? 25

Take care of the numbers in parentheses first. You need to follow the sign, and add 2 and 3. That gives you a '5' and the next sign tells you to multiply that times 4, so you now have '20.' The last sign tells you to add '5' to the previous answer, so 20 +{ 5 = 25.

Only true in this case. The standard advice is to use PEDMAS ... re: the rules for the order of operations in math.

(2 + 3) x 4 + 5

Anything in brackets first

5 x 4 + 5

Then multiply (or divide)

20 + 5

Then add (or subtract)

25
