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:

OperatorDescriptionExample
^Raises one operand to the power of another B^A will give 49
+Adds two operandsA + B will give 9
-Subtracts second operand from the firstA - 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
MODModulus 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
