PE = a gym class so do Parenthesis and Exponents first.

MD = a medical doctor. This is one person so do Multiplication and Division at the same time. working from left to right.

AS(ap) = As Soon as possible. This is one time so do Addition and Subtraction at the same time working from left to right

Do the parenthesis first.

Do the multiplication next

Now do the subtraction
