And means to add. Per means to divide. Less than means to subtract. SEQUENCE OF OPERATIONS Mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are usually performed in a certain order or sequence. Typically, multiplication and division operations are done prior to addition and subtraction operations. In addition, mathematical operations are also generally performed from left to right, using this hierarchy. Parentheses are commonly used to set apart operations that should be performed in a particular sequence.

48. To determine if the math setup is correct, only the dimensions are used. fm Page 49 Tuesday, October 5, 2004 10:51 AM BASIC MATH OPERATIONS 49 Then, the numerator and denominator are multiplied to get = ft 6 gal Thus, by dimensional analysis we determine that if we divide the two dimensions (ft3 and gal/ft3), the units of the answer are ft6/gal, not gal. Clearly, division is not the right way to go in making this conversion. What would have happened if we had multiplied the dimensions instead of dividing?

Here, the unknown is some number of hours. Should the answer be larger or smaller than 20 h? If a 4-gpm pump can fill the tank in 20 h, a larger pump (10 gpm) should be able to complete the filling in less than 20 h. Therefore, the answer should be less than 20 h. 28 Problem: Solve for x in the proportion problem given below. 29 Problem: Solve for the unknown value x in the problem given below. 30 Problem: One pound of chlorine is dissolved in 65 gal of water.
