In Miranda, all operators (except for ++ -- ˆ and :, as will be seen in Chapter 3) associate to the left.[/quote]

Then 2 examples are given! I get this first one:

(4.0 / 5.0 * 6.0) is interpreted as ((4.0 / 5.0) * 6.0)
\_first_/

This one I don't get

(4.0 / 5.0 / 6.0 / 7.0) is interpreted as ((4.0 / 5.0) / 6.0) / 7.0)

Should there not be another parenthesis at the beginning? Like:

(((4.0 / 5.0) / 6.0) / 7.0)

to make sense of Miranda's interpretation?

Yes. An obvious typo.
