## Order of Operations

Python's order of operations works just like math's:

(Remember BOMDAS!)

You've already seen this, actually. The challenge problems at the end of the exponent section asked for these three calculations in a console:

- Parentheses
- Exponents
- Multiplication and division
- Addition and subtraction

You've already seen this, actually. The challenge problems at the end of the exponent section asked for these three calculations in a console:

The first two raise 16 to the 0.5 power – they take the square root of 16. The second problem

In programming, just like in math, order of operations matter!

Table 1-1 below shows all the math operators in Python:

*first*raises 16 to the first power (returning 16)*and then*divides that by 2, leaving 8.In programming, just like in math, order of operations matter!

**data type****is a category for values, and every value belongs to exactly one data type. The most common data types in Python are listed in Table 1-2 below:**
