Simple Calculations

Operators (like +, - or the * and / symbols) are used to perform operations on variables and values. There are different types of operators, three of the main ones are:

-Assignment (the = sign)
-Comparison (the == sign or the > and < signs)
-Arithmetic (+, -, %, *, /)

Time to try out some simple calculations for yourself. A brilliant resource as you get deeper into programming is the following site. You can look up the reference index on the left and find examples for almost anything.
