Well the beauty of xilman's wisdom is that it doesn't matter if you rule to evaluate from left-to-right or right-to-left (which I believe is not used in any language).
As long as you give precedence to division over multiplication you end up with the same value as giving precedence to the direction of the evaluation.

Try it on
8/2*4

In any directional preference you wish.
