BODMAS is an acronym. It stands for Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition & Subtraction. 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
Whereas if you simply work left to right you get a completely different answer.
