19-8/2+6

division first

19-4+6

*add and subtract in order from left to right, whichever comes first !!!*

*subtraction comes first before addition !!!*

19-4=15

15+6=21

also, multiply and divide in order from left to right, whichever comes first !!!

Thank you! That was my issue. I knew PEMDAS is the formula, but I see now multiplication & division, as well as addition & subtraction, are equally important, but are solved according to how it appears in the equation. Thank you!
