## Maths challenge : BODMAS

Where would you insert a bracket to the make the following true?

6 x (4 + 7) - 3 x 2 + 6 = 132

6 x (4 + 7) - 3 x 2 + 6 = 132

## Confusion?

I'm confused.. Didn't you just give us the answer? I went over it several times but i don't see the need to insert brackets. Do we have to add brackets or is this a mistake?

Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong as well.. But still.

If we apply BODMAS we get 66-6+6=66 right?
