## Arithmetic Operators in Python

Arithmetic operators in python are used to perform mathematical calculations between two operands.

Symbol | Operation | Example |
---|---|---|

+ | Addition | x + y |

– | Subtraction | x – y |

* | Multiplication | x * y |

/ | Division | x / y |

% | Modulus | x % y |

** | Exponent | x ** y |

// | Floor Division | x // y |

Let’s understand each operator one by one with the help of examples:

### “+” Operator in Python

+ Operator in Python is use to perform addition between two operands or values.

##### Example of Arithmetic + operator in Python

# Program in Python to add two numbers using + operator a = 10 b = 5 c = a + b print(c)

###### Output:

15

### “-” Operator

“-” Operator in Python is use to perform subtraction between two operands or values.

##### Example of Arithmetic “-” operator in Python

# Program in Python to subtract two numbers using "-" operator a = 10 b = 5 c = a - b print(c)

###### Output:

5

### “*” Operator in Python

* Operator in Python is use to perform multiplication between two operands or values.

##### Example of Multiplication “*” operator in Python

# Program in Python to multiply two numbers using * operator a = 10 b = 5 c = a * b print(c)

###### Output:

50

### “/” Operator in Python

/ Operator in Python is use to perform division operation between two operands or values.

##### Example of Division “/” operator in Python

# Program in Python to divide two numbers using / operator a = 10 b = 5 c = a / b print(c)

###### Output:

2

### “%” Operator in Python

% Operator in Python is use to get modulus of two operands or values.

##### Example of Modulus % operator in Python

# Program in Python to find mod of numbers using % operator a = 10 b = 5 c = a % b print(c)

###### Output:

0

### “**” Operator in Python

** Operator in Python is use to raise power.

##### Example of Exponent ** operator in Python

# Program in Python to calculate the power of number using ** operator a = 10 b = 2 c = a ** b print(c)

###### Output:

100

“//” Operator in Python

// Operator in Python is use to perform division operation and get the result in round figures.

##### Example of Floor Division // operator in Python

# Program in Python to calculate the floor division of number using // operator a = 11 b = 2 c = a // b print(c)

###### Output:

5
