Jan 19, 2023

## 1. The different types of operators in Python

Operators are used in Python to perform operations on variables and associated values.
Python classifies operators according to the following groups:

1. Arithmetic operators
2. Assignment operators
3. Comparison operators
4. Logical operators

## 2. Arithmetic operators

Arithmetic operators are used in Python to perform calculation operations on variables such as addition, multiplication, division...

 Opérateur Description + Addition - Soustraction * Multiplication / Division % Modulo (rest of Euclidean division) ** Exponentiation // quotient of the Euclidean division

## 3. Assignment operators

Assignment operators are used in Python to assign values to variables:

 Operators Example Explanation = x = 7 x = 7 + = x + = 5 x = x + 5 - = x - = 5 x = x -5 * = x * = 5 x = x *5 / = x / = 5 x = x / 5 % = x % = 5 x = x %5 // = x // = 5 x = x //5 ** = x ** = 5 x = x **5 & = x & = 5 x = x &5

## 4. Comparison operators

Comparison operators are used in Python to compare variables:

 Operators Description = = Equality operator != Different operator > Superior < Inferior >= Greater than or equal <= Less than or equal

## 5. Logical operators

 Opérateurs Description and and  logic : returns T rue if both instructions are true and False if not or or  logic: returns True if at least one of the statements is true and False if not not Negation returns False if the assertion is True
