TypeScript Arithmetic Operators

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.
