Brackets are a catch-all term for (), [], {}, etc.  We use the adjective "square" when describing [] so that they are called square brackets. (Q.v. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket)  The use of the word bracket is especially common in British mathematics.
 
Moreover, you are not resolving parenthetical equations, but rather simplifying expressions.
