## How do you explain Bodmas rule?

The BODMAS rule states we should calculate the Brackets first (2 + 4 = 6), then the Orders (52 = 25), then any Division or Multiplication (3 x 6 (the answer to the brackets) = 18), and finally any Addition or Subtraction (18 + 25 = 43). Children can get the wrong answer of 35 by working from left to right.

### When did schools start using Bodmas?

Order of operations eg BODMAS was introduced in 1800s.

**What is the remainder when 235 is divided by 5?**

Thus, the remainder is \[1 \times 3 = 3\]. Hence, the remainder for \[\dfrac{{{2^{35}}}}{5} = 3\]. Note:As you can see in solving this example, we have used the concept of negative remainder.

**Can you use Bodmas without brackets?**

Ans: Yes, we use the BODMAS rule to get the correct answer even if there are no brackets. If there are no brackets, start solving from ‘order’ or ‘of’ followed by Division or multiplication (whatever comes first from left to right) then by addition or subtraction (whatever comes first from left to right).

## Why is multiplication done before addition?

Students should have answered something in their own words that gets across the concept: Multiplication and division are done before addition and subtraction in order to convert groups of items into subtotals of like items that can be combined for the total.

### Is Bodmas taught in UK schools?

There are conventions about the order of operations to try to resolve this, sometimes called BODMAS in UK schools. “If it still seems unclear, it’s best to include brackets to remove any possible ambiguity.

**Is Bodmas American?**

Most common in the UK, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Australia and some other English-speaking countries is BODMAS meaning either Brackets, Order, Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction or Brackets, Of/Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction. Nigeria and some other West African countries also use BODMAS.

**What is Bodmas in maths for kids?**

BODMAS rule is an acronym to help children to remember the order of operations in calculations. Operations are simply the different things that we can do to numbers in maths. It stands for, ‘Brackets, Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. This is also the same for addition and subtraction.
