    x++ means: first read the current value of x and then increment its value. so in the statement: x = x + x + x++ what happens is as follows: x = 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 then the "post increment" on x is applied (i.e. x++) resulting in x getting the value 13 In the second statement: printf("%d\n",x + x + x++); the same thing happens, except this time the result of "x + x + x++" is printed out first and then the current value of x is incremented - which in this case would mean x would end up with a value of 5.

    it doesn't work on #define p(x) printf("%d\n",x); int x = 4; x = x + x++ + x; p(x); x = 4; p(x + x++ + x); same output 13 12

    according to ur explanation first + is evaluated then increment but post increment has higher precedence than normal addition and assignment operator so it should be evaluated first

    post increment always occurs AFTER the value has been read and processed
