Advertisements

The Rexx language supports the normal Arithmetic Operators as any the language. Following are the Arithmetic Operators available in Rexx.

Operator Description Example
+ Addition of two operands 1 + 2 will give 3
Subtracts second operand from the first 1 - 2 will give -1
Multiplication of both operands 2 ∗ 2 will give 4
/ Division of numerator by denominator 2 / 2 will give 1
// Remainder of dividing the first number by the second 3 // 2 will give 1
% The div component will perform the division and return the integer component. 3 % 2 will give 1

Example

The following program shows how the various operators can be used.

/* Main program*/ 
X = 40 
Y = 50 

Res1 = X + Y 
Res2 = X - Y 
Res3 = X * Y 
Res4 = X / Y 
Res5 = X % Y 
Res6 = X // Y 

say Res1 
say Res2 
say Res3 
say Res4 
say Res5 
say Res6 

The output of the above program will be −
