    You have to use BIDMAS in the process

    Why can't it be 9-9=0 if addition and subtraction according to BIDMAS is of equal priority?

    Because 4/2 means 4 divided by 2 and you must do the division before the addition and subtraction.

    That wasn't my question. I said why did you do subtraction before addition?

    If you did it the other way you would have got 9-9=0

    \[3^2 - 2^2 \div (\sqrt{4}) + \sqrt{49} \implies 9 - 4 \div 2 + 7\] According to BIDMAS rule, here you will divide first...

    I know that part but why subtract and then do the division when it's supposed to be the opposite. Can't it be 9-9=0?

    it can't be 9-9 because the order of operation (evaluation) is from left to right. so, 9-2 will be evaluated first, not 2+7
