Basic Operators in Java with Example

Basic Operators in Java with Example

The Java tutorial on the complete example of Java basic operators

The Java operators is an essential thing in Java programming. They included in every logical, algorithm, methods, class, etc of the Java Programming. Java Operators are special symbol or character that use by specific operation between 1-3 operands then return a result. Here's an example of one operand.

int result = 100++;

Two operands.

int result = 100 + 200;

Three operands.

int result = 100 + 200 * 2;

Above example describe that "=", "+" and "*" symbol is an operator and the numbers (100, 200, 300) are operands.

There are a group of operators that classify into the following groups:

  • Java Assignment Operators
  • Java Arithmetic Operators
  • Java Unary Operators
  • Java Equality and Relational Operators
  • Java Conditional Operators
  • Java Bitwise and Bit Shift Operators

We will learn by practice all of those Java operators groups using Netbeans.

Assignment Operators

Java assignment operators assign the value on its right and the operand on its left.

int age = 100;

Above example describe that "int age" is the operand, "100" is the value, and "=" is the assignment operator. There are more than one Assignment operators, you can learn all of them the examples below.

Open the Netbeans application then create a new Java application project and give it the name AssignmentOperators. The newly created Netbeans Java application project will open the AssignmentOperators file automatically which it's the main and runnable Java application.

Next, we will put all Assignment Operators examples inside the main method.

Java Simple Assignment Operator "="

Simple and most used operators that assign a value on its right and operand on its left. It only uses one character or symbol "=".

int a = 100;
System.out.println(a);

Output:
100

Java Add and Assignment Operator "+="

The operand on its left increase or add by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "+=".

int b = 5;
b += 5;
System.out.println(b);

Output:
10

Java Subtract and Assignment Operator "-="

The operand on its left is decreased or subtract by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "-=".

int c = 100;
c -= 50;
System.out.println(c);

Output:
50

Java Multiply and Assignment Operator "*="

The operand on its left is multiplied by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "*=".

int d = 8;
d *= 50;
System.out.println(d);

Output:
400

Java Divide and Assignment Operator "/="

The operand on its left is divided by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "/=".

int e = 200;
e /= 10;
System.out.println(e);

Output:
20

Java Modulus and Assignment Operator "%="

The operand on its left is modulus by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "%=".

int f = 20;
f %= 3;
System.out.println(f);

Output:
2

Java Left Shift and Assignment Operator "<<="

The operand on its left is a binary left shift by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses three characters or symbols "<<=".

int g = 10;
g <<= 2;
System.out.println(g);

Output:
40

How did it work? The default value of the operand is "10" or "1010" then left a shift by "2" or add two digits of "0" on the right of "1010" then result in the value "101000". The result "101000" converted to decimal will be "40".

Java Right Shift and Assignment Operator ">>="

The operand on its left is a binary right shift by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses three characters or symbols ">>=".

int h = 13;
h >>= 2;
System.out.println(h);

Output:
3

How did it work? The default value of the operand is "13" or "1101" then right shift by "2" or remove two digits on the right then result in the value "101000". The result "11" converted to decimal will be "3". If the value more same or more than binary digits of its operand, the result will always "0".

Java Bitwise AND and Assignment Operator "&="

The operand on its left is binary AND by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "&=".

int i = 20;
i &= 30;
System.out.println(i);

Output:
20

How did it work? The default value of the operand is "20" or "10100", binary AND by "30" or "11110" then result in the value "10100". The result "10100" converted to decimal will be "20".

Java Bitwise OR and Assignment Operator "|="

The operand on its left is binary OR by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "|=".

int j = 25;
j &= 15;
System.out.println(j);

Output:
9

How did it work? The default value of the operand is "25" or "11001", binary OR by "15" or "1111" then result in the value "1001". The result "1001" converted to decimal will be "9".

Java Bitwise XOR and Assignment Operator "^="

The operand on its left is binary XOR by the value on its right then save the result on the operand. It uses two characters or symbols "^=".

int k = 20;
k ^= 30;
System.out.println(k);

Output:
10

How did it work? The default value of the operand is "20" or "10100", binary XOR by "30" or "11110" then results in the value "1010". The result "1010" converted to decimal will be "10".

Java Arithmetic Operators

The Arithmetic is part of Mathematics. So, Java Arithmetic operators mean use Mathematics Arithmetic operators.

Still, the Netbeans application opened then create a new Java application project and give it the name ArithmeticOperators.
