Is there really anything left to say? The rule is the rule. There is no debate. It's not a matter of opinion. There is a right answer and a wrong answer. Parentheses first, then exponents, then multiplication and division at equal precedence, which means you go left to right in that case, then finally addition and subtraction, which is also of equal precedence so you go left to right. This is the method to use if you always want to get the right answer. All of these acronyms are interesting and somewhat helpful, but they all fall flat with these equal precedence / left to right problems so if you try to use only the acronym, you're going to be in trouble.

What's better? PEDMAS or PEMDAS? They're equally good / right and equally bad / wrong since M and D both have equal precedence. Which one should you use? Neither, but if you want to use one, flip a coin. They'll both work equally well and fail entirely under the right circumstances.

5 x 5 / 5 --> right under PEMDAS, wrong under PEDMAS
