### BEDMAS Questions

BEDMAS
8 + 6 x 2 x 3 - ( 15 - 13 )
what to do first?
Brackets (15-13)=2
Then you write the question again BUT with the answer you got from answering what was in the brackets
8+6x2x3-2
After brackets you look at Exponents, since there is no exponents you go to the next one which is Division and Multiplication. You ask yourself, is there any division or multiplication in this question? The answer is YES! You answer the multiplaction question....2x3=6 then write the question again but with the answer you got for answering the multiplaction question
8+6x6-2
Since there is still a multiplaction question you must multiply it! 6x6=36
Finally Addition and Subtraction. You ask yourself, is there any addition or subtraction question? The anwser is YES! 8+36=44
44-2=42
The final answer is 42!
8+6x2x3-(15-13)
8+6x2x3-2
8+6x6-2
8+36-2
44-2
42
