ELI5 is an acronym utilized to tell a person to explain a complex idea to him as if he was a 5-year-old. It is often used when talking to a professional in an advanced field such as science, computer programming, engineering, and mathematics.
ELI5 is also known as explaining an idea or theory in "layman's terms." Since the acronym is more informal it should only be used in casual situations where a friend or well-known acquaintance is talking about something complex and confusing.
