Work Step by Step

PEMDAS, the order of operations, tells us to first resolve any expressions in parentheses (P). There are none in the given expression. Next we are told to resolve exponents (E). Again, there are none in the given expression. Next in the order of operations is muiltiplication/division. Operations at the same level are worked left to right, so $8\div2$ should be performed first.
