    We here just add 4 and 3.. But the above expression looks just same as Associative Property Of Addition : \(a + (b+c)\) But, here we will not use Associative Property to simplify this..

    I am still thinking if it is using any property to simplify it...

    BODMAS is not a property I think.. It is just a rule for better solving of Expressions...
