10 – 4 * 2
You may expect the result is 12. But the result is 2. Because here Operator Precedence comes into picture. The operator * and / play higher priority than the + and – operators. In the above expression, the binary operation * is figured out on the operands 4, 2. Then the binary operation minus is done on the operand 10 and 8 giving up the result as 2. In the above expression, we used only the constant values. But one can use the variables also as an operand.
