**Order of Operations Poster**:

**BIDMAS** is an acronym. It stands for **B**rackets, **Indices**, **D**ivision, **M**ultiplication, **A**ddition & **S**ubtraction. It is the order in which you do the operations when solving an algorithm.

e.g 6-(2+2) = 6-4 (since you do the bit in the brackets first)

then you go 6-4=2

If you simply work left to right, you get a completely different answer.
