## JavaScript Arithmetic Operators

The `arithmetic operators` perform arithmetic operations on numbers (either literals or variables) as their operands and return a single numerical value. The following are the list of arithmetic operators available in JavaScript.

In the following example, we will add the two given numbers (50, 45).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num1 = 50; var num2 = 45; var result = num1 + num2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Subtraction

In the following example, we will subtract the two numbers (50 and 45).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num1 = 50; var num2 = 45; var result = num1 - num2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Multiplication

In the following example, we will multiply the two given numbers (5 and 2).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num1 = 5; var num2 = 2; var result = num1 * num2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Exponentiation

In the following example, we will perform the operation of raising one quantity to the power of another (52).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num = 5; var result = num ** 2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Division

In the following example, we will divide the two given numbers (7 by 2).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num = 7; var result = num / 2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Modulus

In the following example, we will find the remainder of the two given number (7 and 2) when dividied.

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num = 7; var result = num % 2; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Increment

In the following example, we will increment the given number (3).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num = 3; var result = ++num; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>

## Decrement

In the following example, we will decrement the given number (3).

### Example

HTML Online Editor
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <script> var num = 3; var result = --num; document.write(result); </script> </body> </html>
