Calculations with ColdFusion

I need to calculate some fields. first I need to sum B + C and then subject that from A. Does coldfusion support parenthesis  for things like this? Can I do, A - (B+C)? Or, Do I need to add B+C first, make it a separate variable and then subtract it from A?

Thank you!

Of course..

<cfset valueA = 4>
<cfset valueB = 10>
<cfset valueC = 15>

<cfset theResult = ValueA - (ValueB + ValueC)>

Yes. Pretty much any language that supports basic arithmetic operations ie + - * / will, as parenthesis are the standard way of specifying  order of operations.
