1. Let's use BEDMAS (brackets, exponents, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction)

48 ÷ 4 x 5 - 2 x 5
(Since there are no brackets or exponents, let's divide)
= 12 x 5 - 2 x 5
(Since there is no more division, let's multiply)
= 60-10
(Last thing left to do is subtract)
= 50

Please can you tell me if the sum of this equation is correct? 19+2x5-11=18. Am I right to use BODMAS to solve it? Thanks for your help.
