int x, a=6, y=7;
x = a++ + y++;

x will be 13,
but I think ++ has high precendence than + ,
so a++, y++ will be exercuted before +,
so I think x should be 15.

please let me know what is wrong in my think.

The post-increment operator, ++, placed after a variable, returns the value first, then increments the variable. Thus the plus operator, +, gets the values 6 and 7.

because ++ occured after the variable so it has not preceding over the +
it means after the action increment the value

Yes, just look at it as:

x = a ++ + y ++ ;

becomes

x = ( a ++ ) + ( y ++ ) ;

So a ++ and y ++ are evaluated first (as the current values of a and y respectively) and then added to be assigned to x. The values of a and y are then incremented after the statement.
