What are the arithmetic operators in Java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

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 operator.
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
