You figure out the overall order by adding together all the exponents in the rate law.

Usually, to determine the order of a certain reaction, you would need to do it through experimental results that Lavelle will provide for you on the exam. Remember not to just use the coefficients from the chemical reaction! That is only for the equilibrium constant.

The order of a reaction is the sum of the individual orders of the reactants.
