Operators in C Programming Language

In this section of the C tutorial, we will learn about operators in C programming language and its types.

What are operators in the C programming language?

Operators in C programming language is used to perform logical and mathematical operations.

Types of Operators

In C Programming language the types of operators are as follows:

Arithmetic operators

It is used for operations like Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, division, and modulus are done using arithmetic operators.
The symbol used for Arithmetic Operators in C programming language is “+”.

Example:

int sum=a+b;

printf("%d",sum);

Assignment operators

It is used to assign values of the variables.
The symbol used for Assignment Operators in C programming language is =, +=, -=, *=, etc.

Example:

int a=5;
int b;
b=a;//assigning value of b to a;

Relational operators

It is used for comparison of the value of two variables.
The symbol used for Relational operators in C programming language is ==, != , >, <, >= & <=.

Example:

if(a>5)
{
return 1;

Logical operators

It is used to control program flow.

Bitwise operators

Used to do bit operations on two variables. The symbol used for Bitwise operators in C programming language is &, |, ^, ~, >> and <<.

Conditional operators (ternary operators)

It is used to execute the first statement if the condition is true and executes another statement if the condition is false.

Increment/decrement operators

It is used to increment or decrement the value of a variable.

Special operators

There are some special operators in C programming Language like &, *, sizeof( ), and ternary operators.
