Q18. What are binary operators? Give examples of arithmetic binary operators.
Ans. Operators that act upon two operands are referred to as Binary Operators.
The operands of a binary operator are distinguished as the left or right operand. Together, the operator and its operands constitute an expression.
- Addition operator +:The arithmetic binary operator + adds values of its operands and the result is the sum of the values of its two operands. For example, 4+20 results in 24.
- Subtraction operator – : The – operator subtracts the second operand from the first. For example, 14-3 evaluates 11.
- Multiplication operator *: The * operator multiples the values of its operands. For example, 3*4 evaluates to 12.
- Division operator /: The / operator divides its first operand by the second. For example, 100/5 evaluates to 20.
- Modulus operator %: The % operator finds the modulus of its first operand relative to the second. That is it produces the remainder of dividing the first by the second operand. For example, 19 % 6 evaluates to 1, since 6 goes into 9 three times with a remainder 1.
