Top definition
A term consistantly used by stubborn mathematically challenged morons who don't even know the order of operations.

Typically used as a defense when such people fail to answer a multi-part equation, and don't feel like admitting their mistake.

When a person uses this term they are basically saying that there should have been brackets surrounding certain parts of a math equation.
Person 1: What does "2 + 3 x 4" equal?

Person 2: 20!

Person 3: No it's 14, learn your order of operations.

Person 2: No! It's supposed to be read as "(2 + 3) x 4". Implied Parenthesis noob!

Person 3: If that were true then the entire order of operations would be untrue.
