C++ Operators



An operator is a symbol which tells compiler to take an action on operands and yield a value. The Value on which operator operates is called as operands. C++ supports wide verity of operators. Supported operators are listed below –

Operator Explanation
Arithmetic Operators Used for arithmetic operations
Relational Operators Used for specifying relation between two operands
Logical Operators Used for identifying the truth value of the expression
Bitwise Operators Used for shifting the bits
Assignment Operators Used for assigning the value to the variable
Misc Operators -

Arithmetic Operators :

Consider that we have A = 20 and B = 10

Operator Description Example
+ Adds two operands or variables A + B = 30
- Subtracts second operand from the first A – B = 10
* Multiplies both operands A * B = 200
/ Divides numerator by denominator A / B = 2
% After dividing the numberator by denominator remainder will be returned after division A % B = 0
++ Increment operator will increases integer value by one A++ = 21
#8211; - Decrement operator will decreases integer value by one A- #8211; = 19

Relational Operators:

Consider that A = 40 and B = 20

Symbol Meaning Example
> Greater than A > B returns true
< Less than A < B returns false
>= Greater than equal to A >= B returns false
<= Less than equal to A <= B returns false
== Equal to A == B returns false
!= Not equal to A != B returns true
#91;/table#93;

Logical Operators :

Consider that A = 0 and B = 0
Operator Description Example
Logical AND (&&) If both the operands are non-zero then only condition becomes true (A && B) is false.
Logical OR (||) If both the operands are zero then only condition becomes false (A || B) is true.
Logical NOT (!) It will reverses the state of its operand i.e true will become false (!A) is true.
