Java arithmetic works from left to right. The [] has a high precedence, rather like (), so the i++ in the [] is evaluated first, then the i++ after the = then the 3ed i++.

Remember that i++ increments the value of i, but the whole expression returns the old value of i.

Now you should be able to work it out for yourself.
