BOMDAS

  1. (mathematics, acronym) Brackets, then order, then multiplication and division, then addition and subtraction; a mnemonic for arithmetic order of operations, with B first and AS last.

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.
