It’s been going down on Twitter and everything you knew about primary school mathematics is about to change. Most people, who went to primary school in Nigeria were probably told that the ‘O’ in BODMAS stands for ORDERS not ‘OF’.
It all started innocuously with the 6÷2(1+2) and opinions were divided as to whether the answer is 1 or 9. Take a crack at it and let us know what the correct answer is in the comment section!
This angry twitter user says whether right or wrong, who has BODMAS helped
Whether OF or ORDERS. I still haven’t used BODMAS to practically make any money. Everyday we discover another childhood lie. Sad mhen!

This one thinks the correction came too late
So its after I’m done graduating from secondary school that you people will tell me that the ‘O’ in BODMAS is Order and no OF. WAKA

And this one says his maths teacher would have had a better answer
If Only Mr Babs (my Maths teacher) is on twitter to see this BODMAS argument — The Unusual Suspect™ (@Sixteen_digits) July 12, 2016
And someone is still in denial of the true state of our dear naira
Now that “O” in BODMAS is Order not Of…could someone pls tell us that true exchange rate of Naira to Dollar is less than what we have now?
