Best answer:
Order of operations is about evaluating an expression.
Here you are performing an algebraic operation on an expression.
So yes you can divide by 1/2 or multiply by 2. As long as you know it does not change the meaning of the expression or the solutions of an equation.

(1/2)x^(-1/2) = 60
multiply by 2
x^(-1/2) = 120
reciprocate
x^(1/2) = 1/120
square
x = 1/14400
