The grammar is indeed ambiguous, but the ambiguity is (implicitly) resolved
by favoring the leftmost derivation, which is what you get from an LL(k)
parser. By the same token (hah!), the grammar expresses that unary
operations have higher precedence than binary ones. For example, -x + y is
parsed as (-x)+y, not -(x+y). If you want a derivation other than the
leftmost one, you need to use parentheses.
