## Braces are known as Double Brackets, Curly Brackets or Curly Braces

 Parentheses Braces Square Bracket

Explanation
Braces are known as Double Brackets, Curly Brackets or Curly Braces. Braces are denoted with the symbol "{ }". In a problem, where there are more than one type of brackets, Braces are the second one to be solved.

Following are some examples which shows the working of Curly Braces & Parentheses

Example 1 = Solve 10 + { 20 - (2 × 5)}
Answer      = Here we have two types of brackets, so we solve the Parentheses first and we get:
= 10 + { 20 - 10 }
Now, solve the values of Braces and we get:
= 10 + 10     = 20

Example 2 = Solve 3 {(2 × 8) + ( 27 ÷ 3)}
Answer      = Here we have two types of brackets, so we solve the Parentheses first and we get:
= 3 {16 + 9}
Now, solve the values of Braces and we get:
= 3 × 25     = 75

Example 3 = Solve 20 - { 2(4 + 10) - ( 30 ÷ 3)}
Answer      = Here we have two types of brackets, so we solve the Parentheses first and we get:
= 20 - { 2 × 14 - 10}
Now, apply the rule of BODMAS and we get:
= 20 - { 28 - 10}
Now, solve the values of Braces and we get:
= 20 - 18     = 2

Example 4 = Solve 100 ÷ { 2(28 - 18)}
Answer      = Here we have two types of brackets, so we solve the Parentheses first and we get:
= 100 ÷ { 2 × 10}
Now, solve the values of Braces and we get:
= 100 ÷ 20     = 5
