#
C++ Syntax:Arithmetic: + - * / %

## Description

The C++ arithmetic operators + - / and * are just as in FORTRAN
There is no exponentiation operator **, instead do:-
pow(x,y)

i.e. x**y which requires the
header file
#include <math.h>

% is the modulo
operator, for example:-

5 % 3
is 2.
See operator
precedence

## Other Uses for + - * / %

- As with other binary operators, the arithmetic operators
can be combined with
=
for example:-
remainder %= divisor;
- * can also be the derefernce operator

## Usage Notes

None.
