# Operator Precedence in C ## Operator Precedence :

Here, in this page we will discuss about the operator Precedence in C. C provides quite a variety of operators which come in handy to the programmer for the manipulation of variables.Operator Precedence is defined by how two operators are bind together and how they will be evaluated. Operator with more precedence will be evaluated first in an expression.

## Operator Precedence

The operators in C are as follows:

• Arithmetic Operators
• Relational Operators
• Bit-wise Operators
• Logical Operators
• Assignment Operators
• Miscellaneous Operators

For example x = 10 – 4 * 2, here the value of x will be 2 not 12 as * (Multiplication) has more precedence over -, so it will be evaluated first which gives 8, then 8 will be subtracted from 10 which gives our final answer 2.

## Precedence And Associativity Table :

Precedence Operator Type Associativity
15 () [] · Parentheses Array subscript Member selection Left to Right
14 ++ — Unary post-increment Unary post-decrement Left to Right
13 ++ — + – ! ~ ( type ) Unary pre-increment Unary pre-decrement Unary plus Unary minus Unary logical negation Unary bitwise complement Unary type cast Right to left
12 * / % Multiplication Division Modulus Left to right
11 + – Addition Subtraction Left to right
10 << >> >>> Bitwise left shift Bitwise right shift with sign extension Bitwise right shift with zero extension Left to right
9 < <= > >= instanceof Relational less than Relational less than or equal Relational greater than Relational greater than or equal Type comparison (objects only) Left to right
8 == != Relational is equal to Relational is not equal to Left to right
7 & Bitwise AND Left to right
6 ^ Bitwise exclusive OR Left to right
5 | Bitwise inclusive OR Left to right
4 && Logical AND Left to right
3 || Logical OR Left to right
2 ? : Ternary conditional Right to left
1 = += -= *= /= %= Assignment Addition assignment Subtraction assignment Multiplication assignment Division assignment Modulus assignment Right to left

#### Example :

Run
```#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
int a = 10, b = 20, c = 30, d = 60;
int res;

//10 + 600
res = a + b * c;
printf("%d\n",res);

//30 * 30
res = (a + b) * c;
printf("%d\n",res);

//30 * 2
res = (a + b) * (d / c);
printf("%d",res);
return 0;
}
```
```Output:

610
900
60```
