C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform Order of Operations

Question two order of operations

Can somebody please help me with question two of the order of operations quiz, I've tried to work everything out using a standard and scientific calculator but still nothing.

I'm having trouble with the %s I don't fully understand how to work that out. I have gone through the video a couple times but that doesn't seem to help.

Kind Regards Christopher

Thank you!

The "%" symbol is the operator for "modulus" or "remainder". If your calculator doesn't do this directly, it's the remainder left after a division. For examples, 10 % 3 = 1 and 10 % 7 = 3.

Also, this documentation page has a chart that might be helpful for doing things in the right order: Operator Precedence.
