What is the order of operations in Python?
In Python, operations has a specific order. This will affect how a program runs and what expressions are processed first.
Python's order of operations is the same as that of normal mathematics:
- Parentheses first
- Then exponentiation
- Then multiplication
- And then addition
This is why the following operation:
x = 7 y = 5 z = 6 print(x + y * z) ## Output: 37
Would have a different output than this one:
x = 7 y = 5 z = 6 print((x + y) * z) ## Output: 72
