Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Expressions, part of Up and Running with C++.
…Before we move to our next program, let's quickly review the math operations in C++.…The symbols are similar to other languages.…The plus sign is used for addition when it's applied to two numbers.…The plus sign can also be used to add two…strings together when creating one long string, this is called concatenation.…The minus sign is used for subtraction.…An asterisk is used for multiplication.…The forward slash represents division.…The percent sign represents modulus division…which is also called remainder division.…
Then we have the insertion operator which is…two less than signs and the extraction operator.…Some of the operators work differently depending…on the data type of the variables.…One of these operations is the plus sign.…When used with two numbers their added,…but on two strings their combined or concatenated.…Sometimes its hard to go from algebra to C++.…Let's take a look at some…algebraic equations and their corresponding C++ equivalents.…On the left hand you see the equations, and…on the right hand side are the C++ versions.…
