23.1.5.Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators are used for mathematical computations.

 Operator Example Usage ** 10**5 The exponentiation operator. 10**5 = 100,000. * 2*3 The multiplication operator. 2 * 3 = 6. / 6/2 The division operator. 6/2 = 3. + 2+2 The addition operator. 2+2 = 4. - 4-2 The subtraction operator. 4 -2 = 2. - -5 The negation operator. + +5 It complements the negation operator.

The basic arithmetic operators in action.
