What is BEDMAS?

BEDMAS is basically an acronym that helps us to understand and remember as to what order to follow when solving a complex mathematical equation.

This not only makes things more systematic but also makes them simpler.

Lets begin with breaking the acronym down

So your first order of business is going to be solving whatever is in the bracket

After brackets we solve exponents

After solving exponents we divide whatever needs to be divided

After dividing we multiply

After multiplying we add

After adding we subtract

These all operations can be found together in a given equation or individually, but the order remains the same. If one of the operations is not present you skip it and move to the next one.

Examples of BEDMAS

We first solved the bracket- in the bracket we also followed BEDMAS by doing addition before subtraction. Once the bracket is solved we do division as that is the next thing after brackets. After that we are left with simple subtraction.

According to BEDMAS, brackets come first so we deal with the bracket. BEDMAS is also applied to the bracket itself so we deal with the bracket within it. Inside the bracket we first multiple and then subtract. Once the smaller bracket is solved we divide in the bigger bracket and then multiply it with -1 to get rid of the bracket. Then the next thing is division, after dividing 24 by 6 we multiply it with -2 and then finally subtract to get the answer.

According to BEDMAS, brackets come first so we deal with the bracket. BEDMAS is also applied to the bracket itself so we deal with the exponents in both the brackets. Once that is done we divide in the first bracket (25/5) and we subtract in the second (5-4). Then we multiply in the first bracket to get rid of both the brackets. Finally, we subtract to get the answer.

Now it's your turn to try.

Practice Problems for BEDMAS

Evaluate each expression.

Take Home Points for BEDMAS

• Make sure you remember that every bracket within a bracket also operates in the order of BEDMAS.

• The order has to be followed according to the acronym BEDMAS and cannot be switched.

• Make sure you remember your integer rules as to what happens when you divide, add, multiply or subtract two negative terms or vice versa.

Our Approach of Tutoring

At QEA, we focus on tutoring the students and build his or her foundation and understanding. Our tutoring approach facilitates independent thinking, so that our students can analyze the questions properly. Our tutors go through math and science lessons step by step, and make sure that you have a firm foundation before they move onto more complex math and science concepts.

1. Step by step explanation

For our science and math tutoring programs, we focus on providing step by step explanations during the tutoring session, facilitating the student’s understanding of the math and science concepts.

2. Building Foundations

Math and science are cumulative. Therefore, building a good foundation is important for the student’s long-term success. In our math and science tutoring, we focus on clarifying the student’s knowledge gaps to help them build a good foundation in math and science.

3. Organize Knowledge

Our tutors will categorize types of problems and organize knowledge making it easier for students to retain
