Expression is evaluated to x = (x) +(AN_INT+(++x))
that's why output is 16

i think its because of ( x += AN_INT)+((++x))) becasue +comes first in the hierarchy

here x is 84....according to K&B right of += is calculated first...

so minhaj i think your answer should be x+=3+7; which is x=7+10...17

then why 16? hmmmm

maybe its becasue the operands are evaluated from left to right....

i think this is x+= (AN_INT) + (++x).....first += is opened up soit is

its x=(x) + (AN_INT) + (++x)

this is simply so confusing

Assignment operators have right to left associativity.i.e; the expression is evaluated from right to left.

No, the answer is 16.

when post increment is applied second time the value is stored temporarily and after all calculations final value is assigned to x.

ok so correct me if am wrong

here x is 6;
x+=3 + ++x;

so Chandana according to you it would be x+=3+ 7; which evaluates to x+=10;

which is x=x+10;

which is x=10+7; right? or 10+6?

As Neha said, value is stored temporarily and after performing the right expression then x value is added...

lets try this


Now the output is 17..

ok..expression is x+= AN_INT + ++x which is x = x + AN_INT + ++x
now according to the rule right side will be calculated first but from left to right
so it becomes: 6+ 3 +7=16.

now, I hope its clear.

i just read the jls and there it is mentioned that the program rememebrs what you had on the left hand side...so its like x+=3+7 whcih gives x+=10 which is x=x+10 equals x=6+10 which is 16......Bingo

understood Ankur???
