# Examples Of Arithmetic Operators In C

To perform arithmetic operations on the operands, arithmetic operators are used. x + y, for example, is an addition arithmetic operation in which x and y are operands and the + symbol is an arithmetic operator.

## 1. Example of the Addition(+) Operator

It introduces two new operands. In the following example, we have two integer variables and use the + operator to find the sum of these numbers.

#include <stdio.h> int main () { int x = 100, y =20; int sum; //Addition(+) operator //The addition result is stored in variable sum sum = x+y; //print result printf("Sum of %d and %d is: %d",x, y, sum); return 0; }

**Output:**

Sum of 100 and 20 is: 120

## 2. Example of the Subtraction(-) Operator

Subtraction is performed with the – operator. We are subtracting the value of y from the value of x in this case. At the end of the program, the subtraction result is stored in an int variable and displayed using printf().

#include <stdio.h> int main () { int x = 100, y =20; int sub; //Subtraction(-) operator //The result is stored in "sub" sub = x-y; //print subtraction result printf("x - y is: %d", sub); return 0; }

**Output:**

x - y is: 80

## 3. Example of the Multiplication(*) Operator

The * operator is used to multiply. As shown in the following program, it multiplies two operands.

#include <stdio.h> int main () { int x = 100, y =20; int product; //Multiplication(*) operator product = x*y; //print multiplication result printf("Multiplication of %d and %d is: %d", x, y, product); return 0; }

**Output:**

Multiplication of 100 and 20 is: 2000

## 4. Division(/) Operator Exemplification

The / operator returns the quotient value after dividing the left and right operands. For instance, if 10 is divided by 5, the / operator will return 2. (quotient).

#include <stdio.h> int main () { int x = 100, y =20; int quotient; //Division(/) operator, it returns the quotient after //dividing x by y quotient = x / y; //print Division result printf("Quotient value after dividing %d by %d is: %d", x, y, quotient); return 0; }

**Output:**

Quotient value after dividing 100 by 20 is: 5

## 5. Example of a Modulus (%) Operator

The remainder after dividing the left-side operand by the right-side operand is returned by the % operator. 10% 2 would, for example, return 0 because 10 is perfectly divisible by 2.

#include <stdio.h> int main () { int x = 100, y =20; int rem; //Modulus(%) operator, it returns the remainder after //dividing x by y rem = x % y; //print Modulus result printf("Remainder value after dividing %d by %d is: %d", x, y, rem); return 0; }

**Output:**

Remainder value after dividing 100 by 20 is: 0
