 # Programming operator ## Introduction

A programming operator is a symbol that represents an action or process. In programming, operator are constructs defined within programming that behaves like functions.

Programming Operator is special symbols that which cause to perform certain functionality. Most of the programming languages, such as python, java, c, c#, javascript…etc. uses operator. Operators are used in programs to manipulate data and variables. Programming operator are the backbone of a program and they are used while performing simple functions related to arithmetic or logical. Programming operator separate identifiers in an expression. The programming operator act upon data items (variable, constants). The data item upon which the operations is performed are called operands.

### Types of programing operators

• Arithmetic Operator
• Relational Operator
• Logical Operator
• Assignment Operator
• Increment/Decrement Operator

Arithmetic Operator

Arithmetic operators are used for performing mathematical calculations. We can write a program for performing calculations like a calculator. Check the table below.

Relational Operator

These operator provides the relationship between two expressions.

Logical Operator

This operator checks the logical relationship between two expressions. The conditions provide logical true of false status after checking.

Assignment Operator

An assignment operator is used for assigning the result of an expression to a variable. The symbol of assignment operator is ( = ).

Increment/Decrement Operator

Increment and decrement operator is often in performing looping. It either increases the value by one or decreases value by 1.
