**Question: If y is of integer type then the expressions**

3 * (y -8) / 9 and (y -8) / 9*3

**Options are: **

A. must yield the same value

B. must yield different value

C. may or may not yield the same value

D. none of the above

Correct answer is:

C. may or may not yield the same value

**Explanation:**

If y = 11, the expression 3 * (y -8) / 9 becomes 3 * 3 / 9, which evaluates to 1. But the expression (y -8) / 9 * 3 becomes 3 / 9 * 3. which evaluates to 0 (since 3/9 is 0)
