Arithmetic Operators in C Language

Operators Definition

As studied earlier, Operators are the symbols, which performs operations on various data items known as operands. For Example: in a a+b, a and b are operands and + is an operator.

Note:- To perform an operation, operators and operands are combined together forming an expression. For example, to perform an addition operation on operands a and b, the addition(+) operator is combined with the operands a and b forming an expression.

Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators are used to perform arithmetic calculations.

They can work on any built-in data type of C except on boolean type.

C provides various arithmetic operators that are,

Operator Description Example
+ Adds two operands. A + B = 30
Subtracts second operand from the first. A − B = -10
* Multiplies both operands. A * B = 200
/ Divides numerator by de-numerator. B / A = 2
% Modulus Operator and remainder of after an integer division. B % A = 0
++ Increment operator increases the integer value by one. A++ = 11
-- Decrement operator decreases the integer value by one. A-- = 9



 Addition is: 10
