Free printable and online math worksheets to help students learn how to understand the function of parentheses and apply to solving problems.
Some of the functions of parenthesis are:
Grouping Operations:
Parentheses are used to indicate that operations within them should be performed first. This helps to clarify the order of operations.
For example:
4 + (3 × 2) = 4 + 6 = 10.
The multiplication inside the parentheses is performed before the addition.
Changing the Order of Operations:
Parentheses can alter the usual order of operations. Operations inside parentheses are prioritized over those outside.
For example:
2 × (3 + 4) = 2 × 7 = 14.
The addition inside the parentheses is performed first, and then the multiplication.
