While programming with high-level languages such as Python, you will use four different types of operators as follows:

- The
**assignment operator**( = ) which is used to assign a value to a variable or a constant. **Arithmetic operators**( +, -, *, /, MOD, DIV, ^ ) which are used to perform mathematical calculations.**Comparison operators**( >, <, >=, <=, ==, != ) which are used to compare values.**Boolean operators**( AND, OR, NOT ) which are often used to complete more than one comparison.

#### Did you know?

MOD is the remainder of a division. (In Python we used the symbol % instead of MOD). For instance:

*7 MOD 3 = 1*

DIV is the quotient of a division. (In Python we used the symbol // instead of DIV). For instance:

*7 DIV 3 = 2*

^ means “to the power of”. (In Python we used the symbol **). For instance:

*7^2 = 49*

MOD, DIV and ^ are all arithmetic operators.
