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**.
