A
mathematical expression is a string of symbols which describes (or
expresses) a (potential or actual) computation using
operators and
operands.
For example,
- 3+5*6/10 describes a computation in which we add 3 and the subexpression 5*6/10.
- 5*6/10 describes a computation in which we multiply 5 times 6 and then divide the result by 10.
