The precedence of an operator specifies how "tightly" it binds
two expressions together. For example, in the expression
`1 + 5 * 3`, the answer is 16 and not
18 because the multiplication ("*") operator has a higher precedence
than the addition ("+") operator.

The following table lists the precedence of operators with the lowest-precedence operators listed first.
