It's because chemistry isn't just math. Chemistry often involves conveying things in a very clear and concise way (cause getting the wrong chemical could mean someone's life). In order to make sure things are best understood, there is a correct way of saying things. In the same way that
"I am walking to the pet store"
is essentially the same as
"I is to walking at the direction of the store of pets"
It's still a lot harder to understand the second one. While it doesn't matter a whole lot with MgO, longer more complicated chemical formulas should generally be written with a set of guidelines for ease of understanding. Those rules also apply to the less important cases too though.

Thanks I'm just being honest though
Oh yeah, I just gotta ignore them and keep on learning
Chemistry is my passion, though I'm still in the early stages of it. I'm debating whether to take analytical or organic next semester. Either way, I'll end up taking both eventually

It's been a couple of years since I read chemistry, but I'm fairly sure there's a systemin which order you place them, for example oxygen is almost always at the end.
I believe in ions, you write the positive ion first and the negative later.
and in more complex molecules you often want a more detailed formula, like CH3CHOHCH3 I believe that's correct. for 2-propanol.

It has to do with the way elements are ordered in compounds.
