Java Associativity of Operators


Associativity tells the direction of the execution of operators. It can either be left to right or vice versa.

/ * -> L to R

+ - -> L to R

++, = -> R to L

Here is the precedence and associativity table which makes it easy for you to understand these topics better:


// Precedence & Associativity

    int a = 6*5-34/2;
   Highest precedence goes to * and /. They are then evaluated on the basis of left to right associativity



 int b = 60/5-34*2;
  = 12-34*2
