JavaScript Operators


The operator = is used to assign values.
The operator + is used to add values.

The assignment operator = is used to assign values to JavaScript variables.
The arithmetic operator + is used to add values together.

y=5;
z=2;
x=y+z;

The value of x, after the execution of the statements above is 7.

JavaScript Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators are used to perform arithmetic between variables and/or values.
Given that y=5, the table below explains the arithmetic operators: 

Operator Description Example Result
+ Addition x=y+2 x=7
- Subtraction x=y-2 x=3
* Multiplication x=y*2 x=10
/ Division x=y/2 x=2.5
% Modulus (division remainder) x=y%2 x=1
++ Increment x=++y x=6
-- Decrement x=--y x=4


JavaScript Assignment Operators

Assignment operators are used to assign values to JavaScript variables.
Given that x=10 and y=5, the table below explains the assignment operators:

Operator Example Same As Result
= x=y x=5
+= x+=y x=x+y x=15
-= x-=y x=x-y x=5
*= x*=y x=x*y x=50
/= x/=y x=x/y x=2
%= x%=y x=x%y x=0


The + Operator Used on Strings

The + operator can also be used to add string variables or text values together.
To add two or more string variables together, use the + operator.

txt1="What a very";
txt2="nice day";
txt3=txt1+txt2;

After the execution of the statements above, the variable txt3 contains "What a verynice day".
 To add a space between the two strings, insert a space into one of the strings:

txt1="What a very ";
txt2="nice day";
txt3=txt1+txt2;

or insert a space into the expression:

txt1="What a very";
txt2="nice day";
txt3=txt1+" "+txt2;

After the execution of the statements above, the variable txt3 contains:
"What a very nice day"

Adding Strings and Numbers

Look at these examples:

x=5+5;
document.write(x);

x="5"+"5";
document.write(x);

x=5+"5";
document.write(x);

x="5"+5;
document.write(x);
