## Calculating 0.5 x 100 x 15 Squared

This problem involves order of operations, often remembered by the acronym PEMDAS or BODMAS. Let's break down the calculation step by step:

**1. Exponents:**
First, we need to calculate 15 squared, which means 15 multiplied by itself: 15² = 15 * 15 = 225

**2. Multiplication:**
Now we have the expression: 0.5 x 100 x 225
Multiplying from left to right:

- 0.5 x 100 = 50
- 50 x 225 = 11,250

**Therefore, 0.5 x 100 x 15 squared equals 11,250.**
