    In Algebra, they teach order of operations(Well, actually in basic math as well..). That's why he asked.

    Your extra parentheses aren't needed...

    They're trying to say that Java math operations follow the same rules as standard order-of-operations in math.

    Thus, in this case you don't need parentheses.
