Abstract

This technique determines the order in which a series of calculations must be carried out when the calculations are keyed in any order. For example: C1 equals C2 X C3 plus 0.5 C2 equals C5 plus 1 C3 equals 3 C4 equals (not specified by operator) C5 equals 5 plus 3 Here, C3 and C5 must be calculated first even though they are specified last. Otherwise, the expression for C1 will not make sense.
