Operators are used to performing operations on any given data stored inside variables.

And **arithmetic operators** makes mathematical operations possible on operands in a program.

I know! I know! This is a basic concept! But let's make it fun!

## Starting with addition and subtraction

Output:

```
Addition 9
Subtraction 8
```

## Now, Multiplication and Division

Output:

```
Multiplication 314.0
Division 2.0
```

## Special arithmetic operators

*Floor division -*: rounds of the result to the nearest whole number.`//`

*Modulus -*: produces the remainder of the numbers Output:`%`

```
Floor Division 3
Modulus 1
```

- Exponentiation - ** : produces the power of given numbers Output:

```
Exponentiation 0.025517964452291125
Exponentiation 37.78343433288728
```
