its 1

In school many years ago they taught us PEMDAS or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally if that helped ppl remember it easier. They still do this today, my kids school anyway.

Parenthese
Exponents
Multiplication
Division
Addition
Subtraction

Ahhh I was in so big of a rush I see Bob Maxey aleady bought up PEMDAS. It pays to read threads from the beginning to end and not skip...lol

I see one thing...there are some different schools of thought in here...lol I'm sticking with 1.

Now I'm curious: I see BODMAS could be interpreted division first than multiplication. How can one use both PEMDAS and BODMAS and get the same answer?

And doing some reading I guess I should say they taught us PEMDAS in the U.S.
