 Solomon said: (Sep 4, 2017) As far as BODMAS rule is concerned. 8988/8/4. 8988 /8 x1/4 =8988 x4 /8 =35952/8 =4494 is the correct answer.

 Deepak Yadav said: (Feb 3, 2018) 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.
