Description |
Example |
+ |
Adds two operands |
A + B will give 30 |
- |
Subtracts second operand from the first |
A - B will give -10 |
* |
Multiples both operands |
A * B will give 200 |
/ |
Divides numerator by de-numerator |
B / A will give 2 |
% |
Modulus Operator and remainder of after an integer division |
B % A will give 0 |
++ |
Increments operator increases integer value by one |
A++ will give 11 |
-- |
Decrements operator decreases integer value by one |
A-- will give 9 |
