PHP Operators

PHP language supports following type of operators.

  • Arithmetic Operators
  • Comparison Operators
  • Logical (or Relational) Operators
  • Assignment Operators
  • Conditional (or ternary) Operators

Assignment Operators

The Assignment operators are summarized in the following table.

Operator Same AS Description
= x = y Simple assignment operator, Assigns values from right side operands to left side operand
+= x =x + y Add AND assignment operator, It adds right operand to the left operand and assign the result to left operand
-= x =x - y Subtract AND assignment operator, It subtracts right operand from the left operand and assign the result to left operand
*= x =x * y Multiply AND assignment operator, It multiplies right operand with the left operand and assign the result to left operand
/= x =x / y Divide AND assignment operator, It divides left operand with the right operand and assign the result to left operand
%= x =x % y Modulus AND assignment operator, It takes modulus using two operands and assign the result to left operand

Example

<html>

<head><title>Assignment Operators</title><head>

<body>

<?php

    $x = 42;

    $y = 20;

    $c = $x + $y;  

    echo "Addtion Operxtion Result: $c <br/>";

    $c += $x; 

    echo "Assignment Operation AND Add Result: $c <br/>";

    $c -= $x;

    echo "Assignment Operation AND Subtract   Result: $c <br/>";

    $c *= $x;     echo "Assignment Operation AND Multiply Result: $c <br/>";

    $c /= $x;     echo "Assignment Operation AND Division : $c <br/>";

    $c %= $x;

    echo "Assignment Operation AND Modulus : $c <br/>";

?>

</body>

</html>
