Precedence of boolean operatorsIn math, different precedences are given to operators to reduce the need for parentheses. E.g. you know that the two expressions given below yield the same value because of the convention that multiplication takes precedence over addition, i.e. multiplication has higher precedence than addition. Sometimes, we put more space around operators with lower precedence to aid in remembering precedences. You can do it too.
