I love this. This is how I learned logic – was through working in BASIC as a kid.
I remember that one of the things I liked about basic over most computer languages is that it evaluate the entire expression before making a decision rather than short circuiting to the first acceptable answer.
But I love learning that the way it evaluates a chain in an if then statement it’s significantly different when you chain them with AND /OR which is standard vs THEN which is uncommon. Speed savings is huge!
YET- chaining with THEN logic is how Excel evaluates.
it’s the logic of it that I find fascinating here.
