I've just googled this and a site pointed out that implied multiplication has a higher precedence than division. For example, 2/5x would normally be interpreted as 2/(5x)

Reference?

I have seen it claimed that 3-1+5 equals -3 on the basis that you evaluate it as 3 - (1 + 5). The reason given is that BODMAS (or BIDMAS/BEDMAS) stands for Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. Therefore since addition is before subtraction you add 1 to 5, and then you subtract that from 3, giving -3.

However this is wrong. Multiplication/division, and addition/subtraction have equal priority and are evaluated left to right.
