8988/8/4 = 8988*4/8 = 4494

4494 is correct which is the actual method of solving division problems.

Based on BODMAS theorem first 8988/8 will perform.

This result as the input and it is divide by 4.

8988/8 = 1123.5.
1123.5/4 = 280.875.

There given;
8988 ÷ 8 ÷ 4.
So 8988 ÷ (8/4)

Then 8988/2,
= 4494 is the answer.

As far as BODMAS rule is concerned.

8988/8/4.
8988 /8 x1/4 =8988 x4 /8 =35952/8 =4494 is the correct answer.

It is absolutely correct! When all the operation are the same simply do it from left to right.

Divya said: (Nov 10, 2018)  
8988x 1/8 * 1/4,
8988 * 1/32,
8988/32,
280.875.

Punisher said: (Feb 6, 2019)  
(8988/4)/8 = (8988/4)*(1/8) = 8988/32.

It is not 8988/4*8.

So the answer 280.875 goes correct.
