Beware Of Devils Masquerading As Saints.
If more pastors had warned their flock about BODMAS more often, many church members wouldn't have gone astray so easily.

The order, in mathematics, of precedence of operations:
Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

So 3 + (3 * 4)

Often used as a dumbed down version of PEMDAS. Quite widely used in the British OCR GCSE mathematics course.

Very much different to ordered precedence, whereby the equation is processed in order of writing.
Using BODMAS, 3 + 8 * 2 = 19
Using ordered precedence, 3 + 8 * 2 = 22

This can be fixed using brackets, (3 + 8) * 2 = 22

Sometimes written as Bodmas, BODMAS or BODMAS. Refers to both the original group, the "Crap band with a crap website -" and any band which doesn't really play any music.
Person 1: "I saw BODMAS play last night!"
Person 2: "You actually saw BODMAS play?"
Person 1: "No, but then I am a compulsive liar"
Person 2: "Really?"
Person 1: "No."

Originally created to help computers and robots deal with long, bracketless sequences of mathematical operations which real people never see in real life, BODMAS has transmuted into a trap for unwitting humans, usually placed on Facebook by so-called friends.
Typical Facebook entry: I am clever because I know BODMAS and all my friends are stupid because they don't. I bet they can't get this right: 2 + 4 x 10 - mainly because I am too lazy or too ignorant to use brackets which were invented to prevent this type of ambiguity.
