Java Question

How do the post increment (i++) and pre increment (++i) operators work in Java?

Can you explain to me the output of this Java code?

int a=5,i;

i=++a + ++a + a++;
i=a++ + ++a + ++a;
a=++a + ++a + a++;

System.out.println(a);
System.out.println(i);


The output is 20 in both cases

Answer

Does this help?

a = 5;
i=++a + ++a + a++; =>
i=6 + 7 + 7; (a=8)

a = 5;
i=a++ + ++a + ++a; =>
i=5 + 7 + 8; (a=8)
