2 + 2 equals "Monday Evening"
I wanted to follow up on Jeffrey’s post and one of the comments. It has to do with this example:
The reason that we get a double rather than an int is because of precedence. The conversion has a higher precedence than the division operation, so what
really means is:
“Convert 1 to an integer and then divide by 2”, which will result in a double (0.5). If we really want our results to be an integer, we should do the following:
which first does the division and then converts to an integer. Viola, we get what we want!
