## Priorities

Hi there! It is time to train your logical skills. Good luck!🤔

Programming-wise, it is vitally important to be good at prioritizing logical statements, like `and` and `or`. In the previous section, you were working with math operations, especially with `+` and `*`. I can guess that you remember from school that `*` has a greater importance than `+`; therefore, the same applies to `and` and `or`.

Note

`and` is multiplication for boolean statements, and `or` is addition; hence, `and` has more prominence.

Let's examine an example and make a guess about the result! If you're worried about making an error, feel free to check the hints in this chapter and refer to the table. Keep in mind that you should perform the action inside the brackets first!

Let's break down this statement and look at each iteration to avoid any misunderstanding:

1. `((True or True) and False) or True`;
2. `(True and False) or True`;
3. `False or True`;
4. `True`.

Note

In each iteration, we simplify the most prioritized part of this expression and replace it with its result. For example, the expression `(True or True)` becomes `True`.

Replace the `___` parts of code with `True` or `False` to make all variables equal `True`.

Everything was clear?
