# Operators - Python

In our last article we learned how to get input from the user, store data in a variable, and work with some basic operators to manipulate that data. In this article we will learn to use Conditional Statements and possibly create functions. So wipe that mustard off your chin, clean the dishes, and let's get to work.

TOOLS YOU CAN USE

The following is a list of operators you can use in Python:

 Symbol Type What it Does + Mathematical Addition - Mathematical Subtraction * Mathematical Multiplication / Mathematical Division // Mathematical Truncating Division ** Mathematical Powers % Modulos Returns the remainder from a division << Shift Left Shift >> Shift Right Shift & Logical And | Logical Or ^ Logical Bitwise XOR ~ Logical Bitwise Negation < Comparison Less than > Comparison Greater than '==' Comparison Equal to != Comparison Not Equal To >= Comparison Greater than or Equal To <= Comparison Less than or Equal To '=' Assignment Assigns a value += Assignment Adds and assigns a value -= Assignment Subtracts and Assigns a value *= Assignment Multiplies and assigns a value /= Assignment Divides and assigns a value //= Assignment Truncate Divides and assigns a value **= Assignment Powers and assigns %= Assignment Modulus and assigns >> Assignment Shifts and assigns << Assignment Shifts and assigns And Boolean Or Boolean Not Boolean

Unfortunately I don't have time to discuss these operators in this tutorial, but join me for the next episode where I will be discussing Sets and how to manipulate data with the rest of these operators. Thanks again for stopping by and remember to check in often for new series from yours truly and others.

Till then...
