[docs] [issue16438] Numeric operator predecence confusing

New submission from Yongzhi Pan:

http://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#numeric-types-int-float-complex

"All numeric types (except complex) support the following operations, sorted by ascending priority."

It list '-' after '+', '/' after '*'. That is to mean '-' has higher precedence than '+'. That is wrong, and is contradicting with here:

http://docs.python.org/3/reference/expressions.html#summary

This should be made clear.
