Hello!!!

Let

I have to make all the possible parse trees for the word

But how can I know how many possible parse trees there are?Is there a formula with which I can find the number of all the possible parse trees?

I think there are 6 of them here, since the difference between the trees will be in which order do you go through the operations (that is, those elements that correspond to P). You can go -+*,-*+,+-*,+*-,*-+ or *+-.

I don't know this stuff, but is the "/" being missed here?
