# C++ Operators - Arithmetic

Arithmetic operators are used to perform common mathematical operations. See table below to

OperatorNameDescriptionExample
-SubtractionSubtracts one value from anotherx - y
*MultiplicationMultiplies two valuesx * y
/DivisionDivides one value by anotherx / y
%ModulusReturns the division remainderx % y
++IncrementIncreases the value of a variable by 1++x
--DecrementDecreases the value of a ariable by 1--x

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 1 + 2;
cout << x;
return 0;
}``````

## C++ Operator Example: Subtraction

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 2 - 1;
cout << x;
return 0;
}``````

## C++ Operator Example: Multiplication

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 2 * 3;
cout << x;
return 0;
}``````

6

## C++ Operator Example: Division

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 6 / 2;
cout << x;
return 0;
}``````

## C++ Operator Example: Modulus

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 6 % 2;
cout << x;
return 0;
}``````

0

## C++ Operator Example: Increment

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 4;
x ++;
return 0;
}``````

5

## C++ Operator Example: Decrement

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
int x = 4;
x --;
return 0;
}``````
