In a previous resource, you used whole numbers and simple rational numbers to identify operations from problem situations. Clue words are important since they can help you to determine which operations need to be performed for a certain situation.

The order of operations is very important. Review the acronym, PEMDAS, to remind yourself about the order of operations.

In this resource, you will focus on applying operations, including the order of operations, to solve meaningful real-world problems. You may also need to convert rational numbers from one form to another.
