# Java Operators

• An operator is a symbol that the compiler to perform a specific operation on operands.
• Example : a + b = c
• In the above example, 'a' and 'b' are operands on which the '+' operator is applied.

• ### Types of operators :

#### 1. Arithmetic Operators :

• Arithmetic operators are used to perform mathematical operations such as addition, division, etc on expressions.
• Arithmetic operators cannot work with Booleans.
• % operator can work on floats and doubles.
• Let x=7 and y=2

• #### 2. Comparison Operators :

• As the name suggests, these operators are used to compare two operands.
• Let x=7 and y=2

• #### 3.Logical Operators

• These operators determine the logic in an expression containing two or more values or variables.
• Let x = 8 and y =2

• #### 4. Bitwise Operators

• These operators perform the operations on every bit of a number.
• Let x =2 and y=3. So 2 in binary is 100, and 3 is 011.

• ### Precedence of operators

The operators are applied and evaluated based on precedence. For example, (+, -) has less precedence compared to (*, /). Hence * and / are evaluated first. In case we like to change this order, we use parenthesis ().

### Example

``````package com.company;

public class CWH_Ch2_Operators {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// 1. Arithmetic Operators
int a = 4;
int b = 6 % a; // Modulo Operator
// 4.8%1.1 --> Returns Decimal Remainder

// 2. Assignment Operators
int b = 9;
b *= 3;
System.out.println(b);

// 3. Comparison Operators
System.out.println(64<6);

// 4. Logical Operators
System.out.println(64>5 && 64>98);
System.out.println(64>5 || 64>98);

// 5. Bitwise Operators
System.out.println(2&3);
//        10
//        11
//        ----
//        10
}
}
