BOMDAS stands for brackets, orders (or powers & roots), multiplication & division (from left to right), and addition & subtraction (from left to right). It is the order in which different operations should be done in a maths equation. This helps to make sure that all math problems are done correctly, no matter how complex.

BOMDAS stands for Brackets, Orders, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. This acronym is used to remember the order of operations when solving a mathematical problem. The order of operations is very important because if it is not followed correctly, it can lead to incorrect solutions. PEMDAS is an alternative acronym that stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction and is sometimes used to remember the order of operations.

The acronym BOMDAS stands for 'brackets, order, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction'. This acronym is used to help people remember the order in which operations should be completed when solving a math problem. The BOMDAS order of operations was originally developed by mathematician Girolamo Cardano in the 16th century. In some countries, the BOMDAS order of operations is known as PEMDAS, with the 'P' standing for 'parentheses' rather than 'brackets'.
