Operators In Python
Operators are the constructs which can manipulate the value of operands.
Consider the expression 4 + 5 = 9. Here, 4 and 5 are called operands and + is called operator.
Types of Operator
Python language supports the following types of operators.
- Arithmetic Operators
- Comparison (Relational) Operators
- Assignment Operators
- Logical Operators
- Bitwise Operators
- Membership Operators
- Identity Operators
Let us have a look on all operators one by one.
Python Arithmetic Operators
Python Comparison Operators
These operators compare the values on either sides of them and decide the relation among them. They are also called Relational operators
Python Assignment Operators
Python Bitwise Operators
Bitwise operator works on bits and performs bit by bit operation.
In the table below: Let x = 10 (
0000 1010 in binary) and y = 4 (
0000 0100 in binary)
Python Logical Operators
There are following logical operators supported by Python language.
let us understand it with example
Python Membership Operators
Python’s membership operators test for membership in a sequence, such as strings, lists, or tuples. There are two membership operators as explained below −
Python Identity Operators
Identity operators compare the memory locations of two objects. There are two Identity operators explained below −
Python Operators Precedence
The following table lists all operators from highest precedence to lowest.
