Hi Peter

Also didn’t learn order of magnitude

Parentheses first then left to right.

I think if equation had parentheses it would not have thrown so many off

I too came up with 1 for answer. Until I relooked at it. Then answered 8.

Never heard of any of the acronyms thanks for the fun

Taught BODMAS in the UK in the early 1950’s.

The issue is to ensure one method only is taught to one and all.

Folk have enough challenges with math without further unnecessary confusion.

I was top of the class at maths and studied maths at A level.

I have never been taught BODMAS, BIDMAS or PEMDAS.

These methods were only added to the UK general curriculum as required learning in 1988. ]]>

Same with me . No Bodmas. School in 50s. Australia.

]]>Me too . In Australia in 1950s we were not taught pedmas.
