# Does the Bodmas rule apply to fractions?

## Does the Bodmas rule apply to fractions?

The BODMAS rule states that division, multiplication, addition, and subtraction to be performed in the order brackets. We also learnt to use the BODMAS rule to simplify fractions.

**How do you solve fractions with Bodmas?**

Before applying the BODMAS rule to this question, you will have to convert all the mixed fractions to proper fractions. You can do these by multiplying the whole number with first the denominator and second add the result with the numerator and finally dividing your total result with the denominator.

### How do you do exponents with fractions?

To solve fractions with exponents, review the rules of exponents. You’ll distribute the exponent to the full fraction if indicated. Then, you’ll multiply the full fraction, the base, by itself the number of times directed by the exponent. Both exponents and fractions are important algebraic concepts.

**Is Bodmas always correct?**

Originally Answered: Should we follow BODMAS or PEMDAS in mathematical calculations? It doesn’t matter. PEMDAS and BODMAS both count division and multiplication as a single step. The ultimate rule is to go from left to right, so either way the answer is 9.

#### Is Bodmas and Bidmas the same?

The BODMAS acronym stands for brackets, orders, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction. It is sometimes known as BIDMAS (with ‘Indices’ used instead of ‘Orders’) or the PEMDAS rule in America (with ‘Parenthesis’ and ‘Exponents’).

**How do you calculate Bodmas without brackets?**

If there are no brackets, start solving from ‘order’ or ‘of’ followed by Division or multiplication (whatever comes first from left to right) then by addition or subtraction (whatever comes first from left to right).

## Can an exponent be a fraction?

If an exponent of a number is a fraction, it is called a fractional exponent. Exponents show the number of times a number is replicated in multiplication. For example, 42 = 4×4 = 16.

**What is the Bedmas method?**

BEDMAS is an acronym to help remember an order of operations in algebra basics. When you have math problems that require the use of different operations (multiplication, division, exponents, brackets, subtraction, addition) order is necessary and mathematicians have agreed on the BEDMAS/PEMDAS order.
