Printing Integer between Strings in Java

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 11 Dec, 2018

Try to figure out the output of this code:




public class Test
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        System.out.println(45+5 + "=" +45+5);
    }
}

Output:

50=455

The reason behind this is – Initially the integers are added andĀ  we get the L.H.S. as 50. But, as soon as a string is encountered it is appended and we get “50=” . Now the integers after ‘=’ are also considered as a stringĀ  and so are appended.

  • To make the output 50=50, we need to add a bracket around the sum statement to overload the concatenation operation.
  • This will enforce the sum to happen before string concatenation as bracket as the highest precedence.




public class Test
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        System.out.println(45+5 + "=" +(45+5));
    }
}

Output:

50=50
