# VB.Net - Arithmatic Operators

Advertisements

Following table shows all the arithmetic operators supported by VB.Net. Assume variable **A** holds 2 and variable **B** holds 7, then:

Operator | Description | Example |
---|---|---|

^ | Raises one operand to the power of another | B^A will give 49 |

+ | Adds two operands | A + B will give 9 |

- | Subtracts second operand from the first | A - B will give -5 |

* | Multiplies both operands | A * B will give 14 |

/ | Divides one operand by another and returns a floating point result | B / A will give 3.5 |

\ | Divides one operand by another and returns an integer result | B \ A will give 3 |

MOD | Modulus Operator and remainder of after an integer division | B MOD A will give 1 |

## Example:

Try the following example to understand all the arithmetic operators available in VB.Net:

Module operators Sub Main() Dim a As Integer = 21 Dim b As Integer = 10 Dim p As Integer = 2 Dim c As Integer Dim d As Single c = a + b Console.WriteLine("Line 1 - Value of c is {0}", c) c = a - b Console.WriteLine("Line 2 - Value of c is {0}", c) c = a * b Console.WriteLine("Line 3 - Value of c is {0}", c) d = a / b Console.WriteLine("Line 4 - Value of d is {0}", d) c = a \ b Console.WriteLine("Line 5 - Value of c is {0}", c) c = a Mod b Console.WriteLine("Line 6 - Value of c is {0}", c) c = b ^ p Console.WriteLine("Line 7 - Value of c is {0}", c) Console.ReadLine() End Sub End Module

When the above code is compiled and executed, it produces the following result:

Line 1 - Value of c is 31 Line 2 - Value of c is 11 Line 3 - Value of c is 210 Line 4 - Value of d is 2.1 Line 5 - Value of c is 2 Line 6 - Value of c is 1 Line 7 - Value of c is 100
