a. What are Operators ?

C Operators

The C language supports a rich set of built-in operators. An operator is a symbol that tells the compiler to perform a certain mathematical or logical operations, based on the values provided to the operator.

Operators are used in programs to manipulate data and variables.

C Operators

C operators can be classified into the following types:

  • Arithmetic operators
  • Relational operators
  • Logical operators
  • Bitwise operators
  • Assignment operators
  • Conditional operators
  • Special operators

Let’s understand each one of these operator types, one by one with working code examples.

What is an Operand?

An operand is a value on which any operator works. For example, when we say 4+5, here, numbers 4 and 5 are operands whereas + is an operator.

Different operators work with different numbers of operands like the + operator requires two operands or values.
