## Overview

Arithmetic operators are used to perform calculations on numerical values, as well as to concatenate two or more string values.

The following is a list of Arithmetic Operators:

• + (Addition) : To add numerical values and to concatenate string values.

Example:

a=5;
b=5;

c=a+b;                    // c= 10

First_Name="John";
Last_Name="Smith";
Name = First_Name + " " + Last_Name;                      // Name = John Smith
• - (Subtraction) : To perform subtraction between numerical values.

Example:

a=5;
b=5;
c=a-b;                     // c= 0
• * (Multiplication) : To perform multiplication of numerical values.

Example:

a=5;
b=5;
c=a*b;                     // c= 25
• / (Division) : To perform division of numerical values.

Example:

a=5;
b=5;
c=a/b;                     // c= 1
• % (Modulus) : To calculate the remainder when a numerical value is divided by another.

Example:

a=5;
b=5;
c=a%b;                   // c= 0

## Data types applicable to Arithmetic Operators

• Number
• Decimal
• String (only for 'Addition' operator)
• Date-Time (only for 'Addition' and 'Subtraction' operators)
