This tutorial explains about Perl available Operators

## What are arithmetic operators in Perl

Arithmetic operators are used to calculate arithmetic mathematical operations

- Addition
- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division
- Modulus
- Exponent

## Perl Arithmetic Operator

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

Operation | Symbol | Description | Result |
---|---|---|---|

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.
