-''​a[0]''​ is assigned to the result of ''​2+4''​. ''​a[1]''​ gets the result of ''​2+2''​. The last index in the first assignment is the result of ''​a[2]'',​ which has already been assigned as ''​4'',​ and its value is also given ''​a[2]''​.+''​a[0]''​ is assigned to the result of ''​2+4''​. ''​a[2]''​ gets the result of ''​2+2''​. The last index in the first assignment is the result of ''​a[2]'',​ which has already been assigned as ''​4'',​ and its value is also given ''​a[2]''​.
  
 This shows that even though any existing arrays named ''​a''​ in the current scope have already been unset by using ''​=''​ instead of ''​+=''​ to the compound assignment, arithmetic variables within keys can self-reference any elements already assigned within the same compound-assignment. With integer arrays this also applies to expressions to the right of the ''​=''​. (See [[#​evaluation_order | evaluation order]], the right side of an arithmetic assignment is typically evaluated first in Bash.) This shows that even though any existing arrays named ''​a''​ in the current scope have already been unset by using ''​=''​ instead of ''​+=''​ to the compound assignment, arithmetic variables within keys can self-reference any elements already assigned within the same compound-assignment.
