If * (multiplication) has higher precedence than /(Division) then why alert is not 1.

Alert(2×2÷2×2);

in javascript (and most of languages) multiplication has same precedence than division, so left to right associativity occurs ^^ to do multiplication before division, use parenthesis ;P

The expression is evaluated from left to right like this 2 * 2 -> (4) (4) / 2 -> (2) (2) * 2 -> (4)
