John: I don’t understand…
Kevin: John, what’s wrong?
John: I’m studying for a math exam. And I keep getting wrong answers. It is this one.
Kevin: Hmm. It’s 12! Isn’t it correct?
John: See? I got the same answer, but the answer sheet says it’s 16…
Kevin: What? The answer sheet must be incorrect! We are correct!

Anne: How’s your study for exam going?
John: Anne! Come here! Can you solve this problem?Anne: What is it? It’s 16, isn’t it?
Kevin: What? no way!
John: You are right! The answer says 16! How did you solve it?
Anne: Before you solve this, look at this!
Kevin: Hey, I can solve this one! Are you looking down on us?
Anne: What do you think the answer is?
Kevin&John: 8!
Anne: Nope! It’s wrong! The answer is 6.
Kevin: No way!
Anne: The arithmetic operation tells you to calculate multiplication and division first, and then calculate addition and subtraction.
John: Oh, so first you do 2 times 2 and it’s 4. And when you add 2, it’s 6!
Anne: That’s right! Good job! Now, try to solve this problem.
John: Oh you are right, I have to calculate multiplication first! Thanks Anne!
Anne: No problem.
Kevin: Anne, I cannot get this area of this shape. Also, I don’t understand what fraction is. And…
John: Oh no Kevin. The exam covers all these.
Kevin: (Complaining) Mathematic is too hard.
John: Alright, let’s play one basketball game for a quick break. Just one game!
Kevin: I agree! That’s a great idea!
Anne: Oh John, Kevin.
