I got this doubt after taking up a test on the topic 'operators'
i = 1+2%3*4
the ans:i=9
Though i answered it corrct,, i got the doubt when i revisited the code.
According to operator precedence, the order of operator precedence starting from the highest is *,/,%. But this is not applicable to the above expression. So i am confused whether we have to follow the order of precedence or do we have any other simple rule?..
pl. clarify

The operators you mentioned * / % have the same level of precedence and are evaluated left to right in the code.
