Answer:

You would need to start adding in that case but there is a way to remember the orders of operation and that is PEMDAS. Each letter represents an operation. P= Parenthesis E=Exponents M= Multiplication D=Division A=Addition S= Subtraction.

Answer:

When subtracting you would need to make sure that your top number is greater than your bottom number. If it is not you would have to borrow "1" from the next number at the top.
