Why is it important to follow the order of operations? What are some of the possible outcomes when order of operations is ignored? If you were to invent a new notation where order of operations was

made clear, what would you do to make it clear?

It would be to create a notation that would help describe the complex digital system. This is to make things easier not only for the students but also for the teachers

It is important to follow the order of operations it makes things easier to solve and it is an essential process in math . A possible outcomes when order of operations is ignored is that answers to an equation will be more than one thus it will complicate the process of solving an equation with a doubt on which answers are either correct or wrong. If a new notation where order of operations was made clear , the best way to expound the new notation is to write clear things out step by step in full details the process on which to solve an equation using the new notation.
