    BODMAS or BIDMAS

    Copy each sum and put , x, +, - or () in each to make it true:
    (i) 4 6 3 = 6
    (ii) 4 6 3 = 30
    (iii) 4 6 3 = 27
    (iv) 4 6 3 = 13


    Dont understand this at all. 4 6 3 cant make 6 ive tried all possibilities.


    (4+6) x 3 = 30 right?


    4 x 6 + 3 = 27 right?



    4 + 6 + 3 = 13 (I know this is right)


    What about the first one??



    Thanks
