**What is assignment operator in Java?**

**Assignment(=)** operator is most common operator in Java. It is used for assigning value to variable. For example

**int** num **=** 5;

**What is arithmetic operator in java?**

Arithmetic operator is an operator which provides addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and reminder. It performs mathematical operation on operands.

Operator |
Description |
Example |

+ |
It is called as Plus operator which adds integral value. |
num1 + num2 |

– |
It is called Minus operator which subtracts integral value. |
num1 – num2 |

* |
It is called Multiply operator which multiply integral value. |
num1 * num2 |

/ |
It is called Divide operator which divide integral value. |
num1 / num2 |

% |
It is called Reminder operator which tells reminder of two integral values. |
num1 % num2 |

**Programming Example:**

class ArithmeticOperators { public static void main(String[] args) { int num1, num2, result; num1=10; num2=20; //Addition result=num1+num2; System.out.println("Addition : "+result); //Subtraction result=num2-num1; System.out.println("Subtraction : "+result); //Multiplication result=num1*num2; System.out.println("Multiplication : "+result); //Division result=num2/num1; System.out.println("Division : "+result); //Reminder result=num1/4; System.out.println("Reminder : "+result); } }

**What is unary operator?**

Unary operator is such kind of operator which requires only one operand to perform task. This type of operator is used for increasing or decreasing value, negating the expression or inverting the Boolean value.

Operator |
Description |
Example |

+ |
Unary Plus Operator: It indicates positive value. (However numbers are positive by default) |
35 or +35 |

– |
Unary Minus Operator: It indicates negative value |
-35 |

++ |
Increment Operator: It increment value by 1 |
num1++ |

— |
Decrement Operator: It decrements value by 1 |
num1– |

! |
Logical Complement Operator: (also known as Not Operator) – It inverts the Boolean expression. (true to false or false to true) |
if(!(true)) |

**Programming Example**

class UnaryOperator { public static void main(String[] args) { int number=10; number++; System.out.println(number); //number is now 11 number=10; number--; System.out.println(number); //number is now 9 number=10; number = -number; System.out.println(number); //number is now -10 boolean bn=true; System.out.println(!bn); //bn is now false } }
