## Arithmetic Operators

There are seven basic arithmetic operators in the Python programming language.

They are:

2. Subtraction
3. Multiplication
4. Division
5. Integer Division
6. Exponentiation
7. Modulus

This is represented by the + symbol. It adds two numbers together and gives their sum.

## Subtraction

This is represented by the – operator. It takes the value on the right from the value on the left to give the difference ot the two values.

## Multiplication

This is represented by the * operator. It multiplies the value on the left with the value on the right to give a product of the two.

## Division

This is represented by the / operator. It divides the value on the left with the value on the right to give the quotient.

## Integer Division

This is a special form of division represented by //. It gives the whole number value of the quotient.

## Exponentiation

This is represented by the ** operator. It gives the result of a value raised to another value.

## Modulus

This is the remainder of division of one number by another number. It is used to test if the number on the right is a factor of the number of the left.

## Conclusion

The above operators are how arithmetic is done in the Python programming language on a basic level.
