## 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
```
