Subject:      grammar rules

In the grammar rules, its states...
<additive_expr> --> <term> { ( '+' | '-' ) <term> }
     <term> --> <factor> { ( '*' | '/' | '%' ) <factor> }

I take this to mean that an add. expr is made of a term + or - another term
and a term is made of a factor * or / or % by another factor.
If this is so, where does 3+4 fall? I can see that 3+4 is = to
(3*1)+(4*1), but should we have to make that distinction?
-Chris
