The Order of Operations Ideal

7 posts in this topic

So I am taking CS 124 right now. This is the intro level computer science class at BYU-I, and we were learning about Boolean logic, and with logic thrown in the mix you have to make a whole new order of operations. Basically PEMDAS is no longer valid. Instead it goes parentheses, increment/decrement, not, multiply/divide/modulo, addition/subtraction, greater than/less than, equality, and, or, assignment. The acronym PIDNMDMASGLEAOA is not quite as short, so they just made categories, and you memorize which categories go before which other ones. It sounds scarily similar to the first ideal, so I decided to post it here.

Quote

Unary before Binary

Math before Logic

Relative before Absolute

AND before OR

I hope this helps out any of my fellow Sanderfans who need to remember the order of operations for Boolean logic.

Actually, your tongue shoves it away for the weird word it is. It just feels like it is rolling.

You know, that would make more sense.
