for correct priority of operators.
Without parentheses AND is evaluated before OR
Attached is a little browser program I use to test Boolean arithmetic.
It is written in html && stands for AND,  stands for OR.
Use == to test if two things are equal, like (3 == 2+1)

no, that's not true. AND and OR have the same priority, just as * and /
(division). (* and / have a higher priority than + and .)

Expressions have to be evaluated from left to right with respect to
priority and parenthesis.
"and" and "or" are binary operators. Therfore your examples can be
written as "A or B" where "B = (C and D)". If you write your example as
"A or (C and D)" then it is the same and everyone sees immediatly, how
it is evaluated.
In both cases, the result is TRUE, because
"TRUE or anything" is TRUE, just as "TRUE or (anything)".
"(A or B) and C" is totally different.
On http://www.proocks.de/truthtable2.php you can create "tables of
truth" (Wahrheitstabellen) for logical expressions like "A or B and C"
and more complex ones.

It is as it is!
