Let's say we have $y = ++$x X is incremented then it is assigned to the y. If we have $y = $x++, x is assigned to y, then it is incremented... $x = 3 $y = $x++ // $y is 3, then x is incremented so $x = 4 $x = 3 $y = ++$x // $x is incremented so, $x = 4. Then it is assigned to y, so $y = 4 It works the same for the decrementing! Hope this makes sense! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„
