Arithmetic Operator

The Java programming language provides operators that perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. There’s a good chance you’ll recognize them by their counterparts in basic mathematics.

The only symbol that might look new to you is “`%`

“, which divides one operand by another and returns the remainder as its result.
