# Arithmetic operators in python CBSE – class 12

__Arithmetic Operators__

__Arithmetic Operators__

When we required to perform mathematic calculation through a python program, like

Example: to calculate simple interest

Simple Interest = Amount*time*Rate/100

Python provides some **arithmetic operator** to be used for this type of basic mathematic calculation, these operators are called arithmetic operator in python programming language.

Let’s see the list of Arithmetic Operators that python provides.

#### List of common arithmetic operator in python

All of these python operators are binary operators it means these operators always required at least two values (operands) to be calculated, for final output

For technically speaking, we can say

Arithmetic operator are those which can perform mathematical operations on operands.

Apart from these binary operators, python provide two __unary operators__ which can perform calculations only on one operand (value).

**Type of arithmetic operators **

After the above discussion, we can categories the arithmetic operator in following two categories

- Binary operator
- Unary operator

**Why **Arithmetic Operators in Python

In this tutorial, We have learnt about **Arithmetic Operators in python for CBSE class 11 & 12** and its related concepts according to **CBSE syllabus.** This tutorial is useful for Central Board of secondary education (CBSE) student of class 11^{th &} 12^{th}, who opted computer science (**Code 083**) as an optional subject. This topic is also important to start learning python programing language for beginners of class 11th and 12th.
