Operators in C Programming and Its Types | C Programming Language

Operators in C Programming: -

An operator in general is a symbol that operates on a certain data types. An operator is a symbol that tells the compiler to perform specific mathematical or logical functions.
The types of operators are: -

Arithmetic Operators in C Programming-:

             The arithmetic operators performs arithematic operations. The arithmetic operator is given below:-
(+) - Addition
(-) -Subtraction
(*)- Multiplication
(/)- Division
(%) - Modulo Division


Relational operators in C Programming:-

            Relational operators are used to compare logical, arithmetic and character expression. A list of relational operators is give below:-
(<)            Less than
(>)           Greater than
(< =)         Less than or equal to
(> =)        Greater than or equal to
(==)             Equal to
(! =)             Not equal to

Logical Operators in C Programming: -

            An expression logical operator returns either 0 or 1 depending upon whether expression is used to calculate the value of logical expression. There are three types of logical operators in C language. They are:-
(&&)     logical AND
(||)     Logical OR
(!)      Logical NOT


Assignment Operator in C Programming

          An assignment operator is used to form an assignment expression, which assigns the value to an identifier. The most commonly used assignment operator is = (equal to.). it is written in the form.
Identifier = expression;
Example: - i=100; j=200;


Increment and Decrement operator in C Programming

            Increment and decrement operators are unary operators that add or subtract one form their operands respectively. The increment operator ++ which adds 1 to its operand and the decrement operator -- which subtracts 1 from its operands.


Conditional Operators in C Programming

            Conditional operators which is also called ternary operator can be used as shorthand for some if-else statements. The operator consists of two symbols: the question mark (?) and the colon (:).
The general syntax of the conditional operator is:
Identifier = (test expression)? Expression 1: Expression 2;


 int main()
 printf(" Enter an integer number:\n ");
 (a%2==0)?printf("\n %d is an even number.",a):printf("\n %d is an odd number.",a);
 return 0;


Conditional Operator Output

Size of operators in C Programming

            This operator returns the size of its operands in bytes. The size of operator always precedes its operand. The operand may be an expression or it may be a cast.
For example, in C programming: - 
i= integer 
char= character
printf("Size of integer :",sizeof(i));
printf("Size of character:",sizeof(char));


int main()
int integerType;
float floatType;
double doubleType;
char charType;
printf("Size of int: %ld bytes\n",sizeof(integerType));
printf("Size of float: %ld bytes\n",sizeof(floatType));
printf("Size of double: %ld bytes\n",sizeof(doubleType));
printf("Size of char: %ld byte\n",sizeof(charType));

return 0;
