# PHP Operators

In every programming language, operators play an important role. It can be use in comparison statements like IF statement, loops statement like WHILE loops, assigning a value to a variable and a lot more.

## Comparison Operators

Operator Description Example
>= is greater than or equal to 4>=9 returns false
<= is less than or equal to 5<=7 returns true
is less than 2<7 returns true
is greater than 3>9 returns false
<>  is not equal 2<>3 returns true
!= is not equal 4!=8 returns true
== is equal to 2==1 returns false

Example of comparison operators in IF statement:

=9){ //the statement here will not be executed } ?>

## Arithmetic Operators

Operator Description Example Result
* Multiplication x=2
x*3
6
/ Division 9/3
10/2
3
5
x+4
7
- Subtraction x=1
5-x
4
-- Decrement x=4
x--
x=3
++ Increment x=7
x++
x=8
% Modulus (division remainder) 5%2
10%8
10%2
1
2
0

Example of arithmetic operators in mathematics:

## Logical Operators

Operator Description Example
&& and x=8
y=2
(x < 10 && y > 1) returns true
! not x=7
y=2
!(x==y) returns true
|| or x=8
y=2
(x==8 || y==2) returns false

Example of logical operators is IF statement:

## Assignment Operators

Operator Example Is The Same As
+= a+=b a=a+b
*= a*=b a=a*b
= a=b a=b
.= a.=b a=a.b
-= a-=b a=a-b
%= a%=b a=a%b
/= a/=b a=a/b

Example of assignment operators in a variable x and y:

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by SourceCodester.com for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.

2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
