# Operators in Expressions

An operator is a symbol that represents to perform simple basic operation. The following operators are used in an expression: arithmetic, comparison, concatenation, logical or bitwise, and bit shift.

## Arithmetic

Arithmetic operators perform mathematical operations on two numeric terms in an expression.

Operator Description
^ Raises a number to the power of another number.
* Multiplies two numbers.
/ Divides two numbers and returns a float result.
| Divides two numbers and returns an integer result.
Mod Returns the integer remainder of a division.
- Returns the difference between two numbers.

## Comparison

Comparison operators is used to compare whether two expressions are the same.

Operator Description
< Less than.
>= Less than or equal to.
> Greater than.
>= Greater than or equal to.
= Equal to.
<> Not equal to.
Like Determines specific character string matches a specified pattern.
Is Compares two object references.

## String Concatenation

String concatenation appends the second string to the first string in an expression.

Operator Description
& Concatenates two strings.
+ Concatenates two strings.

## Logical and Bitwise

Logical and bitwise operators perform logical manipulations between two integer terms in an expression.

Operator Description
And Performs a logical conjunction on two Boolean expressions, or bitwise conjunction on two.
Not Performs logical negation on a Boolean expression, or bitwise negation on a numeric expression.
Or Performs a logical disjunction on two Boolean expressions, or bitwise disjunction on two numeric values.
Xor Performs a logical exclusion operation on two Boolean expressions, or a bitwise exclusion on two numeric expressions.
AndAlso Performs logical conjunction on two expressions.
OrElse Performs logical disjunction on two expressions.

## Bit Shift

Bitwise operators perform bit manipulations between two integer terms in an expression.

Operator Description
>> Performs an arithmetic left-shift on a bit pattern.
<< Performs an arithmetic right-shift on a bit pattern.
