Brackets
Brackets are symbols used in pairs to group things together.

Types of brackets include:

parentheses or "round brackets" ( )
"square brackets" or "box brackets" [ ]
braces or "curly brackets" { }
"angle brackets" < >

Example: (3 + 2) x (6 - 4) = 5 x 2 = 10
The Parentheses group 3 and 2 together, and 6 and 4 together

Note: Angle brackets can be confusing because they look like the "less than" and "greater than" signs.
