# Thread: The value of x

1. ## The value of x

`double x = 7 / 2 + 1.5;`
I think the answer is 5

If n has the value 3, what is the value of the expression:

2 + n * 2 > 9

In Java, the answer is 4.5 - 7 and 2 are considered int's unless specified otherwise, so 7/2 = 3

3. ## Re: The value of x

The expression gives the

boolean object false

because multiplication preceeds addition..and so 8>9 which results in false

4. ## Re: The value of x

Its because the number used is an integer dataType...and not the double type..so if you add, subtract, multiply and divide the integer, the result is also an integer and not double.... so in that case 7/2=3 not 3.5
