I don't see this as a math problem, but rather an order of precedence problem.

So "the answer" is to know the correct order of precedence as the notation demands.

One can "optimizer" under the order of precedence rules using heuristics which maintain coherence of the equation, but that doesn't change the fundamental problem from being one of symantecs.
