Hello all. Currently working on simplifying some Boolean expressions, one of the questions is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

( A int B U C) int B

I do not know how to go about simplifying the first term because there are not any parentheses within it and I have both the intersection and union symbols. Is there an order of operations, so to speak, where the union or intersect takes priority? Or I work left-to-right within a set of parentheses, etc. I've searched my textbooks and the Internet and I haven't found anything. Thanks in advance.
