 # Python Operator

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.

• Python Arithmetic Operators

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then

• 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.

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then

• Python Assignment Operators

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then

• Python Bitwise Operators

Bitwise operator works on bits and performs bit by bit operation. Assume if a = 60; and b = 13; Now in binary format they will be as follows −

a = 0011 1100

b = 0000 1101

—————–

a&b = 0000 1100

a|b = 0011 1101

a^b = 0011 0001

~a  = 1100 0011

There are following Bitwise operators supported by Python language • Python Logical Operators

There are following logical operators supported by Python language.

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then

• 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:
