The rules that say which calculation comes first in an expression.
They are: • do everything inside parentheses first: ()
• then do exponents, like x^{2}, x^{3} etc • then do multiplies and divides from left to right • then do the adds and subtracts from left to right 


Term

Definition
multiplying a number by a group of numbers added together is the same as doing each multiplication separately.
EX: 3(2 + 4) = 3×2 + 3×4
So the "3" can be "distributed" across the "2+4" into 3 times 2 and 3 times 4.

A fixed value. A number on its own
Ex: in "x + 5 = 9", 5 and 9
