Simple Boolean Algebra Expression

found myself confronted with an interesting problem that i was not 100% sure on,

is:

x1 and (not)x2 or x3

a Boolean expression? (notice the lack of parenthesis around x1 and x2 or x2 and x3)

i believe not since there are "no parenthesis" around one of the expressions.

(im not asking how to solve it or anything, just if its valid, at first i thought it was so i continued on to solve it using proofs but then i realized the lack of parentheses created a problem.

thanks.
