.. precedeces means to come before operator precedence means to decide which operator to evaluate first _ example _ 1+2*4-3 the program needs to know if it does 1+2 first or 2*4 ? in such a case we define rule such that we evaluate * first 1+(2*4)-3 1+2-3 0 the language makers defined it so that the program does not become confused it is normally evaluated in terms of priority : P E M D A S P arenthesis then E xponential then M ultiplication then D ivision then A ddition then S ubstraction there is also another precedence left-to-right precedence we tell the program to begin from the left when parsing expressions
