If we take as example a simple expression, such as `2 + 3 = 5`

, the operator is the sign `+`

. The numbers `2`

and `3`

are the operands.

The most common kinds of operators are:

- Arithmetic Operators
- Assignment Operators
- Comparison Operators
- Logical Operators

Of course there are other kind of operators but those are the most common.

Arithmetic and assignment operators are simple, as you could see in the example `2 + 3 = 5`

.

The comparison and logical operators are used in conditional statements.

The other operators, that are not so common, are:

- Bitwise Operators
- Membership Operators
- Identity Operators
