We already looked at one assignment operator when we talked about variables. Letâ€™s take a look at few of the most commonly used assignment operators.

The **Add AND** `+=`

operator adds the values of the left and right operands together then assigns the resulted value to the left operand.

`x += y`

is the same as

`x = x+y`

The **Divide AND** `/=`

operator takes the value of the left operand and divides it by the value of the right operand then assigns the result to the left operand.

`x /= y`

is the same as

`x = x/y`

The **Modulus AND** `%=`

operator divides the value of the right operand by the value of the left operand then assigns the reminder to the left operand.

`x %= y`

is the same as

`x = x%y`

The rest of the assignment operators (`-=`

, `*=`

, `**=`

, `//=`

, work in the same way.
