What is BODMAS?
BODMAS is an acronym or mnemonic used to help pupils remember the correct order to complete mathematical calculations .
What does BODMAS mean?
Each letter stands for a mathematical operation.
When you complete a mathematical number sentence involving several different operations then BODMAS helps you to know which order to complete them in. Anything in Brackets should be completed first, then the orders, followed by any division or multiplication and finally addition or subtraction.
Division and Multiplication have been grouped together as they are of the same level; this means that if you have a calculation involving division and multiplication then you complete them as they appear from left to right. This is the same for addition and subtraction; they are completed as they appear from left to right.

@Tornyeli_Mombin Herrhh, EC needs you
Let’s solved it together using the BODMAS approach since involves several different operations
|Brackets||( ) There is no Bracket|
|Orders/Others||There is no ‘order’ or ‘Of’|
|Division: ÷||There is no division|
|Addition: +||10+(-100+10)= 10-90|
|Subtraction: –||10-90= |
Therefore the final answer is -80
