# VB.Net - Arithmetic 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
```
