Q. How does operator precedence work? A. Operators like *,/,% (multiplicative) have higher precedence than +,- (additive). eg:- 1} 10*4/2= 20...... (Same level of precedence is carried out on basis of which comes first) 2} 10+4-2=12.....(Same level of precedence is carried out on which comes first) 3} 10+4/2= 12..... (First Quotient and then addition) 4} 10/4+4%2=2... (First Quotient then Remainder then addition of both) For operators used in terms within brackets, brackets are solved first.

Q: What are Challenges in SoloLearn? How do they work? A: Challenges are initiated by challenging another user in the Challenge section using a certain weapon (language). Challenges consist of 5 relevant programming questions which has to be completed by both users within a limited amount of time. The user with the most correct answers wins. If both sides get equal amount of correct answers, the challenge ends in a draw. After initiating and completing 5 questions of the challenge session, the user who initiated the challenge will have to wait until the other user comes online and accept the challenge. Users have the option to decline the challenge. If the other user does not respond to the challenge invitation, the challenge will simply expire. Users gain XP for winning challenges, and lose XP for losing challenges. The base algorithm of the XP system in challenges is as such: Lose XP = 32 - Win XP Answer bonus may also be given to beginners.
