This tutorial explains about Perl available Operators

## What are arithmetic operators in Perl

Arithmetic operators are used to calculate arithmetic mathematical operations

• Subtraction
• Multiplication
• Division
• Modulus
• Exponent

## Perl Arithmetic Operator

For example, We have operand1(op1)=6 and operand2(op2)=2 values.

OperationSymbolDescriptionResult
Addition`+`addition of two operands\$op1 + \$op2 is 8
Substraction`-`Substraction of two operands\$op1 - \$op2 is 4
Multiplication`*`Multiplication of two operands\$op1 * \$op2 is12
Division`/`Division of operand1 by Operand2 of two operands\$op1 / \$op2 is 3
Modulus`%`Remainder after division\$op1 % \$op2 is 0
Exponent`**`Exponent calculation. Operand1 power of operand2\$op1 ** \$op2 is 36

Here is a Perl Arithmetic Operator Example

``````my \$op1= 4;
my \$op2 = 2;

my \$result= \$op1 + \$op2;
print "Addition of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";

\$result= \$op1 - \$op2;
print "Substraction of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";

\$result= \$op1 * \$op2;
print "Multiplication of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";

\$result= \$op1 / \$op2;
print "Division of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";

\$result= \$op1 % \$op2;
print "Modulus of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";

\$result= \$op1 ** \$op2;
print "Exponentation of \$op1 and \$op2 is \$result \n";
``````

Output:

``````Addition of 4 and 2 is 6
Subtraction of 4 and 2 is 2
Multiplication of 4 and 2 is 8
Division of 4 and 2 is 2
Modulus of 4 and 2 is 0
Exponentiation of 4 and 2 is 16
``````

## What arithmetic operators are used in Perl scripts?

Arithmetic operators in Perl allow you to do arithmetic calculations on operands. Addition(+), Multiplication, Subtraction, Division, Modulus, and Exponent(power) operators exist for this.

## What are arithmetic operators in Perl

there are 6 operators in Per for arithmetic calculations. Addition(+), Multiplication, Subtraction, Division, Modulus, and Exponent(power) operators exist for this.
