Q: Should any factors be accounted for when explaining how to solve an equation? Explain your answer.

A: Definitely yes , and this is the basic in solving equation following the order of operation which is PEMDAS ;
"Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction". [ This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank

addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank). When you have a bunch of operations of the same rank, you just operate from left to right. ]
