But the Bedmas/whichever rule is a little dumb because division doesn't take precedence over multiplication, or addition over subtraction. Just have to go from left to right.
Also, in French we use PEMDAS if I remember correctly. That's what I learned.
"Parenthèse, Exposant, MULTIPLICATION, DIVISION, addition, soustraction"
This would mean that if we do this in order, the answer would be different for both french and english speaking people. You just have to do the multiplications and divisions in the order they come.
