# Python | Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators perform basic mathematical operations. The Arithmetic operators are:

• Addition `+`
• Subtraction `-`
• Multiplication `*`
• Division `/`
• Modulus `%`
• Exponent `**`
• Floor Division `//`

The Addition `+` operator adds together the value of the operands.

``4 + 3 = 7``

The Subtraction `-` operator subtracts the value of the right operand from the value of the left operand.

``4 – 3 = 1``

The Multiplication `*` operator multiplies the value of the operands.

``4 * 3 = 12``

The Division `/` operator divides the value of the left operand by the value of the right operand.

``4 / 3 = 1.3333``

The Modulus `%` operator divides the value of the left operand by the value of the right operand then returns the reminder.

``4 % 3 = 1``

The Exponent `**` operator perform exponential calculations.

``4 ** 3 = 64``

The Floor Division `//` operator performs a division then throws away the reminder.

``4 // 3 = 1``

In Python, the order of operations is based on PEDMAS (parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction).
