Learn and know the various **types of brackets** that we use **in math**. If you are a student then definitely you should know about different types of brackets.

While solving problems, you may be observed so many **types of brackets**. In any problem, if there are brackets, first we should solve them. This thing we have learnt from BODMAS Rule. Now the question is do you know how many **types of brackets** are there in mathematics and what are the names of that brackets. Up to know if you don’t know how **many brackets** are there, no problem. Now we will learn all the **different brackets names** and their notations.

**List of different types of brackets used in mathematics:**

There are totally four types of brackets that were used in math. They are

- Parentheses or small brackets ( )
- Flower brackets or Braces { } these brackets we can also say as curly brackets
- Square brackets [ ]
- Line brackets or vinculum __

In all these four brackets, first we should solve line brackets, second parentheses, third-flower brackets and finally fourth- square brackets. This order depends upon the problem. This order is not same for all the cases.

Example:

Solve [2+8(6+5{3+2}-10)-3]

Solution:

[2+8(6+5{3+2}-10)-3]

= [2+8(6+5{5}-10)-3]

= [2+8(6+25-10)-3]

= [2+8(31-10)-3]

= [2+8(21)-3]

= [2+168-3]

= [170-3]

=167

In the above problem, first we simplified flower brackets, then small brackets and at last square brackets.

Hope now you have understood different **types of brackets** and their names.
