## 1 Operator Precedence

Consider the following:

strSum :: [Int] -> String strSum xs = show $ sum xs -- equivalent to strSum xs = ($) show (sum xs)

This seems strange but it's exactly the same as:

minMax :: [Int] -> Int minMax xs = minimum xs + maximum xs -- equivalent to minMax xs = (+) (min xs) (max xs)

This because function application has higher precedence than any operator, so `f a `op` g b`

is always equivalent to `(f a) `op` (g b)`
