I went back and redid the exorcise a few times and I'm afraid this is still beyond me. Order of operations is no big thing for me, I understand that just fine. What I am missing is why it would bother to do it. Is there another way to code that, which would result in the correct answer, that would not use order of operations? I'm trying to understand why it would be reliant upon something that to me, just doesn't seem necessary.

Maybe I should just move on, and it will all eventually make sense later. I can see where order of operations would be a real big deal in programming, but I thought it would be clear and make sense at any given time, as to why order of operations was being put to use.
