# What is the order of operations?

## The order of operations

**From left to right, start with division and multiplication and continue with addition and subtraction.**

Don't forget, if a calculation has division and multiplication in it, do them left to right. It doesn't matter which order they are in. The same applies to addition and subtraction.

## Let's make it more difficult!

**If there are brackets in the calculation, you must do the part inside the brackets first. It doesn't matter if it's division, multiplication, addition or subtraction.**

You might know the order of operations as 'BODMAS', 'BIDMAS' or PEDMAS'.
