## Arithmetical binary operator precedence¶

What is 3^2*4 + 2%5? The value (38) is determined by this “operator precedence table”. The table below is based on the table in § 5.14 of the Python Language Reference Manual by G. Rossum and F. Drake. the operations are listed here in increasing order of precedence.

Operators Description

not boolean not

>, <=, >, >=, ==, != comparison
Therefore, to compute 3^2*4 + 2%5, Sage brackets the computation this way: ((3^2)*4) + (2%5). Thus, first compute 3^2, which is 9, then compute both (3^2)*4 and 2%5, and finally add these.
