This is why everyone should use Reverse Polish Notation.

Easy.
I thought you were just making shit up, but it seems that what you're saying is that Reverse Polish Notation, also known as reverse Łukasiewicz notation, Polish postfix notation or simply postfix notation, is a mathematical notation in which operators follow their operands, in contrast to prefix or Polish notation (PN), in which operators precede their operands and that the notation does not need any parentheses for as long as each operator has a fixed number of operands.
TBH, this just muddies the water for me.
I prefer MWN (Moronic Warhead Notation).
However, I'm tempted to tell my granddaughter to ask her teacher why they don't use RPN, but that's probably fraught with danger.
