# Python Operators

• An operator is a symbol that tells the computer to perform certain mathematical or logical manipulation on data stored in variables. The variables that are operated are termed operands.
• operators can be classified into a number of categories.
• Arithmetic operators
• Assignment operators
• Comparison operators
• Logical operators
• Identity operators
• Membership operators
• Bitwise operators

## Arithmetic operators

Python provides all the basic arithmetic operators. There are five arithmetic operators in python.
Name Purpose
Substation
* Multiplication
/ Division
% Modules (Remainder after integer division)
** Exponentiation
// Floor division
Example

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x + y)
``````
Output
11
Example

Substation of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x - y)
``````
Output
5
Example

Multiplication of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x * y)
``````
Output
24
Example

Division of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x / y)
``````
Output
2.66666666666665
Example

Modules of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x % y)
``````
Output
2
Example

Exponentiation of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x ** y)
``````
Output
512
Example

Floor division of two number

``````x = 8
y = 3

print(x // y)
``````
Output
2
