Arithmetic Operators in C

These  operators are used to perform mathematical calculations in a program. Various arithmetic operators in C language are as follows:



1. +

Addition operator (+) is used to add numeric values.

Example

11 + 3 = 14

2. –

Subtraction operator (-) is used to subtract one numeric quantity from another value.

Example

11 – 3 = 8

3. *

Multiplication operator (*) is used to multiply values of numeric quantities.

Example

11 * 3 = 33

4. / 

Division operator (/)  is used to divide one number by another number.

Example

11 / 3 = 3

5. %

Modulus operator (%) divides one number by another number to give remainder.

Example :

20 % 3 =2




 

Program to demonstrate arithmetic operators.  Output 
#include<stdio.h>
int  main()
{
int a,b,c;
a=20;

b=3;
 

 

c=a+b;
printf(“\n%d”,c);
23
c=a-b;
printf(“\n%d”,c);
17
c=a*b;
printf(“\n%d”,c);
60
c=a/b;
printf(“\n%d”,c);
6
c=a%b;
printf(“\n%d”,c);
2
return (0);
}
