# Java: Arithmetic Operators ## Operators

Java provides quite a variety of operators which come in handy to the programmer for the manipulation of variables.

The operators in java are as follows:

• Arithmetic Operators
• Relational Operators
• Bitwise Operators
• Logical Operators
• Assignment Operators
• Miscellaneous Operators

## Arithmetic Operators

They are used in mathematical expressions in the same way that they are used in algebra, i.e, to perform the basic mathematical functions.

These operators perform the most simple calculations and are five in number as shown in the table.

 Operator Functionality Syntax + Addition a+b – Subtraction a-b * Multiplication a*b / Division a/b % Modulus a%b ## Syntax with Example

Run
```class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {

// declare variables
int a = 26, b = 4;

System.out.println("a + b = " + (a + b));

// subtraction operator
System.out.println("a - b = " + (a - b));

// multiplication operator
System.out.println("a * b = " + (a * b));

// division operator
System.out.println("a / b = " + (a / b));

// modulo operator
System.out.println("a % b = " + (a % b));
}
}```

### Output

```a + b = 30
a - b = 22
a * b = 104
a / b = 6
a % b = 2```
