Arithmetic operators are symbols that represent computations like addition, multiplication, and division. JavaScript supports several arithmetic operators, including:

• `+` (Addition)
• `-` (Subtraction)
• `*` (Multiplication)
• `/` (Division)
• `%` (Modulus)
• `++` (Increment)
• `--` (Decrement)

## How to Use Arithmetic Operators

Here’s a brief explanation of how each operator works:

### Addition (`+`)

The `+` operator adds two numbers together.

``let sum = 5 + 3; // sum will be 8``

### Subtraction (`-`)

The `-` operator subtracts one number from another.

``````let difference = 5 - 3; // difference will be 2
``````

### Multiplication (`*`)

The `*` operator multiplies two numbers together.

``````let product = 5 * 3; // product will be 15
``````

### Division (`/`)

The `/` operator divides one number by another.

``````let quotient = 6 / 3; // quotient will be 2
``````

### Modulus (`%`)

The `%` operator returns the remainder of a division operation.

``````let remainder = 7 % 3; // remainder will be 1
``````

### Increment (`++`)

The `++` operator increases a number by 1.

``````let num = 5;
num++; // num will be 6``````

### Decrement (`--`)

The `--` operator decreases a number by 1.

``````let num = 5;
num--; // num will be 4``````

JavaScript’s arithmetic operators are fundamental to performing mathematical operations in your code. They are essential tools in every developer’s toolkit.
