**C++ operators** are symbols that perform operations on variables and values. For example, `+`

is an operator used for addition, while `-`

is an operator used for subtraction. C++ Operators can be classified into **6** types:

**Arithmetic Operators****Assignment Operators****Relational Operators****Logical Operators****Bitwise Operators****Other Operators**

### Arithmetic Operators

There are the following arithmetic operators supported by the C++ language:

Operator | Description |
---|---|

+ | Adds two operands |

– | Subtracts second operand from the first |

* | Multiplies both operands |

/ | Divides numerator by de-numerator |

% | Modulus Operator and the remainder of after an integer division |

++ | Increment operator increases integer value by one |

— | Decrement operator decreases integer value by one |

### Relational Operators

There are the following relational operators supported by the C++ language

Operator | Description |
---|---|

== | Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not, if yes then the condition becomes true. |

!= | Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not, if values are not equal then the condition becomes true. |

> | If the value of the left operand is greater than the value of the right operand, if yes then the condition becomes true. |

< | Checks if the value of the left operand is less than the value of the right operand, if yes then the condition becomes true. |

>= | Checks if the value of the left operand is greater than or equal to the value of the right operand, if yes then the condition becomes true. |

<= | Inspect if the value of the left operand is less than or equal to the value of the right operand, if yes then the condition becomes true. |

#### Logical Operators

There are the following logical operators supported by the C++ language.

Operator | Description |
---|---|

&& | Called Logical AND operator. If both the operands are non-zero, then the condition becomes true. |

|| | Called Logical OR Operator. If any of the two operands are non-zero, then the condition becomes true. |

! | Called Logical NOT Operator. Use to reverses the logical state of its operand. If a condition is true, then the Logical NOT operator will make false. |

### Bitwise Operators

Operator | Description |
---|---|

& | Binary AND Operator copies a bit to the result if it exists in both operands. |

| | Binary OR Operator copies a bit if it exists in either operand. |

^ | Binary XOR Operator copies the bit if it is set in one operand but not both. |

~ | Binary Ones Complement Operator is unary and has the effect of ‘flipping’ bits. |

<< | Binary Left Shift Operator. The left operands value is moved left by the number of bits specified by the right operand. |

>> | Binary Right Shift Operator. The left operands value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand. |

### Assignment Operators

There are the following assignment operators supported by the C++ language.

Operator | Description |
---|---|

= | Simple assignment operator, Assigns values from right side operands to left side operand. |

+= | Add AND assignment operator, It adds the right operand to the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand. |

-= | Subtract AND assignment operator, It subtracts the right operand from the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand. |

*= | Multiply AND assignment operator multiplies the right operand with the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand. |

/= | Divide AND assignment operator, It divides left operand with the right operand and assigns the result to the left operand. |

%= | Modulus AND assignment operator, It takes modulus using two operands and assigns the result to the left operand. |

<<= | Left shift AND assignment operator. |

>>= | Right shift AND assignment operator. |

&= | Bitwise AND assignment operator. |

^= | Bitwise exclusive OR and assignment operator. |

|= | Bitwise inclusive OR and assignment operator. |
