# Python – Basic Operators

Basic Operators, Operators are the constructs which can manipulate the cost of operands.Consider the expression 4 + five = nine. Here, four and 5 are called operands and + is called operator.

## Types of Operator

Python language supports the subsequent sorts.

• Arithmetic
• Comparison (Relational)
• Assignment
• Logical
• Bitwise
• Membership
• Identity

Let us have a glance on all separately.

## Basic Operators, Python Arithmetic

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then −

## Basic Operators, Python Comparison

These operators compare the values on either sides of them and decide the relation among them. They are also called Relational.

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then −

## Python Assignment

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then −

### Python Bitwise

Bitwise operator works on bits and performs bit by bit operation. Assume if a = 60; and b = 13; Now in binary format they will be as follows −

a = 0011 1100

b = 0000 1101

a&b = 0000 1100

a|b = 0011 1101

a^b = 0011 0001

~a = 1100 0011

There are following Bitwise supported by Python language

## Python Logical

There are following logical supported via Python language. Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20 then

## Python Membership

Python’s membership operators take a look at for membership in a chain, along with strings, lists, or tuples. There are two club operators as explained below −

## Python Identity

Identity operators examine the reminiscence locations of two items. There are Identity operators explained below −

## Python Operators Precedence

The following table lists all from highest precedence to lowest.

Sr.No. Operator & Description
1 **Exponentiation (raise to the power)
2 ~ + –Complement, unary plus and minus (method names for the last two are [email protected] and [email protected])
3 * / % //Multiply, divide, modulo and floor division
