BODMAS RULE

The rule or order that we use to simplify expressions in math is called BODMAS rule.

Very simply way to remember BODMAS rule!

B ----> Brackets

O ----> Of (orders :Powers and radicals)

D ----> Division

M ----> Multiplication

A ----> Addition

S ----> Subtraction

Important Notes :

1. In a particular simplification, if you have both multiplication and division, do the operations one by one in the order from left to right.

2. Division does not always come before multiplication. We have to do one by one in the order from left to right.

3. In a particular simplification, if you have both addition and subtraction, do the operations one by one in the order from left to right.

Examples :

12 ÷ 3 x 5 = 4 x 5 = 20

13 - 5 + 9 = 8 + 9 = 17

In the above simplification, we have both division and multiplication. From left to right, we have division first and multiplication next. So we do division first and multiplication next.

Problem 5 :

Evaluate :

56 - 2(20 + 12 ÷ 4 x 3 - 2 x 2) + 10

Solution :

Evaluation

= 56 - 2(20 + 12 ÷ 4 x 3 - 2 x 2) + 10

= 56 - 2(20 + 12 ÷ 4 x 3 - 2 x 2) + 10

= 56 - 2(20 + 3 x 3 - 2 x 2) + 10

= 56 - 2(20 + 9 - 4) + 10

= 56 - 2(29 - 4) + 10

= 56 - 2(25) + 10

= 56 - 50 + 10

= 6 + 10

= 16

Problem 6 :

Evaluate :

6 + [(16 - 4) ÷ (22 + 2)] - 2

Solution :

Evaluation

= 6 + [(16 - 4) ÷ (2+ 2)] - 2

= 6 + [12 ÷ (2+ 2)] - 2

= 6 + [12 ÷ (4 + 2)] - 2

= 6 + [12 ÷ 6] - 2

= 6 + 2 - 2

= 8 - 2
