Question

Following the order of operations, solve 3 - (4 × 5) ÷ 2 + 6

  1. - 1    
  2. 1    
  3. 10    
  4. 5    

Hint:

BODMAS rule is a rule that instructs mathematicians on how to solve a mathematical expression.

The correct answer is: - 1


    Step 1 of 1:
    The order of operations is brackets, division/multiplication (from left to right), and addition/subtraction (from left to right).
    3 - (4 × 5) ÷ 2 + 6 = 3 – 20 ÷ 2 + 6
    = 3 – 10 + 6
    = - 7 + 6
    = - 1

    BODMAS gives an order sequence of operations that has to be followed when solving an equation that involves multiple operators in it.
