# Python: Check the priority of the four operators

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a Python program to check the priority of the four operators (+, -, *, /).

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Import the 'deque' class from the 'collections' module and the 're' module for regular expressions.
from collections import deque
import re

# Define operators, parentheses, and operator priorities.
__operators__ = "+-/*"
__parenthesis__ = "()"
__priority__ = {
'+': 0,
'-': 0,
'*': 1,
'/': 1,
}

# Define a function 'test_higher_priority' to compare the priorities of two operators.
def test_higher_priority(operator1, operator2):
# Return True if the priority of 'operator1' is higher than or equal to 'operator2'.
return __priority__[operator1] >= __priority__[operator2]

# Test the function with different operator pairs and print the results.
print(test_higher_priority('*','-'))
print(test_higher_priority('+','-'))
print(test_higher_priority('+','*'))
print(test_higher_priority('+','/'))
print(test_higher_priority('*','/'))
``````

Sample Output:

```True
True
False
False
True
```

Explanation:

The above Python code defines a function "test_higher_priority()" that compares the priorities of two mathematical operators (+, -, *, /). Priorities are predefined in the "priority" dictionary. The function returns 'True' if the priority of the first operator is higher than or equal to the priority of the second operator.
