In the video, Pankaj Tripathi asks Rajkummar Rao, “What is 2+2/2?”

Applying the BODMAS rule is very important while solving a given mathematical equation to get the correct answer. But, there are times when we forget to apply this simple math rule and add or subtract first before multiplying or dividing or solving the brackets. And this is precisely what Rajkummar Rao did when Pankaj Tripathi asked him a simple math question.

The clip posted on Instagram is from the 2017 multi-starrer film Newton. In it, Pankaj Tripathi asks Rajkummar Rao, "What is 2+2/2?" To this, he immediately answers two by adding two twos and dividing it by 2. The answer was wrong, as he didn't apply the BODMAS rule. As the video progresses, Pankaj Tripathi corrects him by saying, 'Three'. For the unversed, BODMAS stands for Bracket, Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction.
