This question has appeared on this forum before -- just use the search link above to look for either "SSBool" or "dokey".

Basically... the key to getting the answer is an understanding that the bitwise AND operator has a higher precedence than the bitwise OR operator.

hi,

Its simple you evaluate from left to right and replace every expression with its value you'll get the answer.

line 1:

if (b1 & b2 | b2 & b3 | b2)

if( true & false | false & true | false) became
if(false | false & true | false) after evaluating true & flase to false. Then that became
if(false & true | false) after evaluating false | false to false. After that false & true gave false then false | false gave false as a result.

For Line 2:
Its just performing line 1 result | b1. b1 is true. hence false (result of line 1) | true yields true.

I think you are clear now.

Simplest answer is it is all in operator precedence!
