Arithmetic operators act on numerical values as operands to produce a single numerical result. Arithmetic operators in Python are:
2 + 3 2 + 3 * 4.5 x = 10.5 # Assignment expression y = 5.2 # Assignment expression sum = x + y sub = x - y
The numeric constants (2, 3, 4.5) in addition to x and y variables are operands of the addition, subtraction and multiplication operators.
The modulo or remainder operator finds the remainder of an integer division. Example:
x = 3 % 2 y = 9 % 3 print(x, y)
Will output 1 0 since 2 can go into 3 one time with a remain of 1 and 3 can go into 9 three times with a remainder of 0.
