# Arithmetic Operators in C

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

## 1. +

Addition operator is represented as plus (+) sign. It is used to add values of numeric variables, constants or expressions.

11 + 3 = 14

## 2. –

Subtraction operator is represented as a hyphen (-). It is used to subtract value of one numeric quantity from another.

11 – 3 = 8

## 3. *

Multiplication operator is represented as an asterisk (*). It is used to multiply value of one numeric quantity with another numeric quantity.

11 * 3 = 33

## 4. /

Division operator is represented as a forward slash (/). It is used to divide value of one numeric quantity by another numeric quantity.

11 / 3 = 3

## 5. %

Modulus operator is represented as a percent sign(%). It returns remainder after dividing one numeric quantity by another numeric quantity.

### Example :

10 % 3 =1

 Program to demonstrate arithmetic operators. Output (Line Wise) #include int  main() { int a=10,b=3,c; c=a+b; printf(“\na+b=%d”,c); a+b=13 c=a-b; printf(“\na-b=%d”,c); a-b=7 c=a*b; printf(“\na*b=%d”,c); a*b=30 c=a/b; printf(“\na/b=%d”,c); a/b=3 c=a%b; printf(“\na%%b=%d”,c); a%b=1 getch(); return (0); }
