After the following statement:

Similarly, you can gain control over operator precedence by using parentheses, as shown in this example

This example should be included:

var1 = (var2 + var3) * var4;
Here, the content of the parentheses is evaluated first, meaning that the + operator acts before the * operator.

Chapter 3 Exercise 4 Error in Code
The *, %, and / operators have equal highest precedence here, followed by + and finally +=. The precedence in the exercise can be illustrated using parentheses as follows:

resultVar += (var1 * var2) + (var3 % (var4 / var5));

Or:

resultVar += (var1 * var2) + ((var3 % var4) / var5));

The result is the same in both cases.
