An operator is a symbol that represents a specific action. An arithmetic operator can be used with one or more than values to produce a single value.

In typescript, we can perform arithmetic operations using below given 10 operators.

## Arithmetic operators

Operator | Name | Description and Example |
---|---|---|

`x + y` |
Addition |
Adds two operands.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x + y; console.log( z ); //Output 30 |

`x - y` |
Subtraction |
Subtracts two operands.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x - y; console.log( z ); //Output -10 |

`-x` |
Negation |
Negate the sign. Opposite of number.
let x = 10; let z = -x; console.log( z ); //Output -10 |

`x * y` |
Multiplication |
Negate the sign. Opposite of number.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x * y; console.log( z ); //Output 200 |

`x ** y` |
Exponentiation |
Multiplies the first operand by itself a number of times which is indicated by the second operand.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x ** y; console.log( z ); //Output 100000000000000000000 or 1e+20 |

`x / y` |
Division |
Divides the numerator by the denominator.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x / y; console.log( z ); //Output 2 |

`x % y` |
Modulus |
Returns the remainder after an integer division.
let x = 10; let y = 20; let z = x % y; console.log( z ); //Output 10 |

`x++` |
Increment |
Increases an integer value by one.
let x = 10; x++; console.log( x ); //Output 11 |

`x--` |
Decrement |
Decreases an integer value by one.
let x = 10; x--; console.log( x ); //Output 9 |

Above are the **arithmetic operators used in typescript**.
