Chapter 5 Class 11 - Getting started with python

An operator is used to perform specific mathematical or logical operations on values . The values that the operators work on are called operands .

Example:

Expression:  25 + num

• operator is ‘+’
• Operands are 25 and num

Python supports several types of operators.

## Arithmetic Operators

Python supports arithmetic operators that are used to perform the four basic arithmetic operations as well as modular division, floor division and exponentiation.

## Relational Operators

Relational operator compares the values of the operands on its either side and determines the relationship among them.

## Assignment Operators

Assignment operator assigns or changes the value of the variable on its left.

## Logical Operators

The logical operator evaluates to either True or False based on the logical operands on either side. Every value is logically either True or False.

## Identity Operators

Identity operators are used to determine whether the value of a variable is of a certain type or not. Identity operators can also be used to determine whether two variables are referring to the same object or not.

## Membership Operators

Membership operators are used to check if a value is a member of the given sequence or not.
