Help students achieve their goals by realising their potential.

Multiplication before addition therefore: 6 + 8x3 = 6 + 24 = 30

The answer is 30 because you multiply 8 by 3 to get 24, then you need to add 6 to 24 which means you get 30.

Remember to use BODMAS

Hello! How's it going!

Bodmas stands for - Brackets, Orders, Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction.

So let's do the multiplication first which is 8 x 3 which of course is 24! Then add 6. That equals 30!

Hope that helps!

Using BODMAS, M (Multiplication) comes before A (Addition) so we need to multiply before we add:

8 x 3 = 24

Using this answer, we add it with what is left in our question:

6 + 24 = 30
