Basic operations are the building blocks and rules of math. They’re like learning the rules of the road in Driver’s Ed. We know the four basic rules: add, subtract, multiply, divide. Now we’re going to combine them in new ways to do new things.

Shmoop’s guide will help you review and give you plenty of practice problems, examples, and exercise to be sure you know your stuff.

Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
