Nope. Written as you posted, it's evaluated from right to left, i.e.: you first evaluate 1.4^1.2, then 1.6 raised to the last result, then 1.8 raised to the last result, then 2 raised to the last result.

That final result is 9.720868106440216192155483936635...

V.

Since the dawn of computing it's been "top down" or right associative. Otherwise it is a bug.

However, mathematicians like Neil Sloane take a much more creative look at this problem with "Dungeon Numbers - Numberphile" giving "top down" an entirely different meaning
