In this article, you will learn built-in operators in Python. Python has built-in operators for calculations. "**+ (addition)"**, "**- (subtraction)"** and "*** (multiplication)"** works the same way as you would expect. Therefore, I will skip explaining these.

**Prerequisites:**

“**/**” is floating division. This operator divides a number and always returns the result as a floating number.

**"+"**, "**-"**, and "***"** returns floating number if there is any floating number in the calculation. If all numbers are integer, it will return an integer. This is why I wanted to explain the “**/**” division operator.

**Code:**

>>>a = 57 // 6

>>>print(a)

**Output:**

9.5

“**//**” is integer division. Which means it will return the only integer.

**Code:**

>>>a = 57 // 6

>>>print(a)

**Output:**

9

****** Exponentiation operator computes **a ^{b}** (a raise to the power b)

**Code:**

>>>print(2**4)

**Output:**

16

**%** remainder operator returns the remaining value after a division.

**Code:**

>>>a = 57 % 6

>>>print(a)

**Output:**

3

There are more built-in operators and there are many operators which you can import to your program. But for the beginning, this will be enough.
