Test your math skills with this math equation 

Try to solve this equation and get the right answer.

Here is the solution: 

Did you find the right answer? If not, here it is.  

The right answer is 12.  

Here is how I got the right answer: 

BEDMAS, or PEMDAS, is an acronym that means: 

  • B – brackets  
  • E – Exponents 
  • D – Division 
  • M – Multiplication 
  • A – Addition 
  • S – Subtraction 

This represents the Order of Operationsi.e. the order in which we solve math equations.  

In the aforementioned equations, we first solve the bracketed part: (8 ÷ 4) = 2 

Then, we do the other part of the division: 24 ÷ 4 = 6 

Finally, we do the multiplication: 6 x 2 = 12.  

The right answer is 12.
