What is Arithmetic Instructions In C Programming Language?

These types of instructions are used to perform arithmetic operations between constants and variables.

Some of the arithmetic operators are: +, -, * and /.

Example:

int a;
float b, deta, alpha, gamma, beta;
a=500;
b=0.0056;
deta=alpha*beta/gamma+0.5*2/5;

There are three types of arithmetic statements:

1. Integer mode arithmetic statement:

In this type of arithmetic statement all operands are either integer variable or integer constant.

2. Real mode arithmetic statement:

In this type of arithmetic statement all operands are either real constant or real variables.

3. Mixed mode arithmetic statement:

In this type of arithmetic statement some of the operands are integer and some of them are real.
