1.1.2. Expressions-WE1-P2

Subgoals for evaluating an assignment statement

  1. Determine resultant data type of expression

  2. Update variable for pre-increment or pre-decrement operators (side effect)

  3. Evaluate arithmetic expression according to operator precedence

  4. If an assignment statement (=), is Left Hand Side (LHS) a variable? Check data type of value against data type of variable.

  5. Update variable for post-increment or post-decrement operators (side effect)

For the assignment statements below, either give the new value of the assigned variable, or enter “invalid” if the statement would result in a compiler error or using an undefined value. Each problem is independent of the others (e.g. Question 2 does not depend on Question 1, only the “Given” code).



int alpha, beta = 1, gamma;
double omega = 2.5, theta, lambda;
