BODMAS

  1. (mathematics, acronym) Brackets, order, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction; a mnemonic for arithmetic order of precedence, with the highest precedence first.

Usage notes[edit]

This mnemonic leads many to the notion that multiplication is precedent to division, and addition to subtraction; however, these are within the pairs equal in precedence and resolved from left to right.
