Hey! Found possible errors that I did not see on https://www.selikoff.net/java-oca-8-programmer-i-study-guide/

page 56, 4th rule:

After all promotion has occurred ..


should be

After all promotions have occurred ..



page 57, in the first sentence:

.. so that it can be divided with y.


should be

.. so that it can be multiplied with y.

Welcome to the Ranch

If you use “promotion” as an abstract noun, it behaves as a mass nous and I would regard “has” as normal.
Please explain more about the second error. I usually say multiply by 2 or divide by 2 myself.

Thanks for the welcome!

My bad on the first error.

The second error talks about the operation x*y/z, so in the first sentence on page 57, x is multiplied with y, not divided.

The second one is already on the errata:

In the second sentence, “multiplied” should be “divided”.



It was first reported in 2015 here
