## Python 101 NoteBook

• Arithmetic operators are used to perform mathematical operations on numerical values. Python supports the following arithmetic operators:
2. Subtraction (-)
3.Multiplication (*)
4.Division (/)
5.Floor division (//)
6.Modulus (%)
7.Exponentiation (**)

### Example

```# Addition (+): adds two values together
a = 2
b = 3
c = a + b
print(c) # Output: 5
# Subtraction (-): subtracts the second value from the first value
a = 5
b = 3
c = a - b
print(c) # Output: 2
# Multiplication (*): multiplies two values together
a = 2
b = 3
c = a * b
print(c) # Output: 6
# Division (/): divides the first value by the second value (returns
a float)
a = 10
b = 3
c = a / b
print(c) # Output: 3.3333333333333335
# Floor Division (//): divides the first value by the second value
and returns the floor (integer) value
a = 10
b = 3
c = a // b
print(c) # Output: 3
# Modulus (%): returns the remainder after division of the first
value by the second value
a = 10
b = 3
