Calculating Specificity Of Selector Expression

A selector expression is a selector or a combination of selectors.

[0] [0] [0] [0] [0]
!important style="" id selector class, attribute, psuedo class selectors type selector and psuedo element

For every selector expression we get a five digit priority value from the above diagram. Larger values override smaller values. Same values override based on top to bottom(last selector expression overrides previous ones).
