Tool to remove unnecessary parentheses in mathematical expressions. Some parentheses or braces or brackets are redundant according to priority of math operators.
Remove Parentheses - dCode
Tag(s) : Mathematics
dCode is free and its tools are a valuable help in games, maths, geocaching, puzzles and problems to solve every day!

Enter a mathematical expression including parentheses and click on the button. If unnecessary or redundant parentheses are detected then the expression can be simplified (visually).
Example: ((a*b)+(c*d)) can be rewritten without parenthesis in a*b+c*d
Example: (a+b)*(c+d) can not be simplified
The rules to remove the parentheses/braces depend on the precedence of mathematical operators. Exponentiations precedence over multiplication and division have themselves priority over addition and subtraction.
To calculate the final result, use the dCode tools as the simplifier of mathematical expressions.
In mathematics, there exists an order for operators, a priority is given to some mathematical operations: (1: top priority, 4: lowest priority)
1 - calculations in parentheses
2 - exponentiations
3 - multiplications and divisions
4 - additions and subtractions
The only necessary parentheses are those that require a different order in the calculation of an expression. The others are unnecessary and can be deleted.
