## When should you use brackets in a quote?

When writers insert or alter words in a direct quotation, square brackets—[ ]—are placed around the change. The brackets, always used in pairs, enclose words intended to clarify meaning, provide a brief explanation, or to help integrate the quote into the writer’s sentence.

BODMAS is wrong. That’s what. It contains no brackets, powers, division, or multiplication so we’ll follow BODMAS and do the addition followed by the subtraction: This is erroneous.

## Does Bodmas apply if no brackets?
