# Java arithmetic operators

Arithmetic operators are used in mathematical expressions in the same way that they are used in algebra. The following table lists the arithmetic operators −

Assume integer variable A holds 10 and variable B holds 20, then

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

+ (Addition) | Adds values on either side of the operator. | A + B will give 30 |

- (Subtraction) | Subtracts right-hand operand from left-hand operand. | A - B will give -10 |

* (Multiplication) | Multiplies values on either side of the operator. | A * B will give 200 |

/ (Division) | Divides left-hand operand by right-hand operand. | B / A will give 2 |

% (Modulus) | Divides left-hand operand by right-hand operand and returns the remainder. | B % A will give 0 |

++ (Increment) | Increases the value of operand by 1. | B++ gives 21 |

-- (Decrement) | Decreases the value of operand by 1. | B-- gives 19 |
