# Wordy

Parse and evaluate simple math word problems returning the answer as an integer.

## Iteration 1 — Addition

Add two numbers together.

What is 5 plus 13?

Evaluates to 18.

Handle large numbers and negative numbers.

## Iteration 2 — Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Now, perform the other three operations.

What is 7 minus 5?

2

What is 6 multiplied by 4?

24

What is 25 divided by 5?

5

## Iteration 3 — Multiple Operations

Handle a set of operations, in sequence.

Since these are verbal word problems, evaluate the expression from
left-to-right, *ignoring the typical order of operations.*

What is 5 plus 13 plus 6?

24

What is 3 plus 2 multiplied by 3?

15 (i.e. not 9)

## Bonus — Exponentials

If you'd like, handle exponentials.

What is 2 raised to the 5th power?

32

## Resources

Remember to check out the Perl 6 documentation and resources pages for information, tips, and examples if you get stuck.

## Running the tests

There is a test suite and module included with the exercise.
The test suite (a file with the extension `.t`

) will attempt to run routines
from the module (a file with the extension `.pm6`

).
Add/modify routines in the module so that the tests will pass! You can view the
test data by executing the command `perl6 --doc *.t`

(* being the name of the
test suite), and run the test suite for the exercise by executing the command
`prove . --exec=perl6`

in the exercise directory.
You can also add the `-v`

flag e.g. `prove . --exec=perl6 -v`

to display all
tests, including any optional tests marked as 'TODO'.
