## Arithmetic Operations

An overview of how to perform basic math in Python

### Basic Math

We can also do basic math with our variables or with numbers in general, whether integers or floats. Just use ‘+’ for addition, ‘-’ for subtraction, ‘*’ for multiplication, and ‘/’ for division.

```print(5+7)
number1 = 8.5
number2 = 9.3
divided_value = number1/number2
print(divided_value)
```

Output:

```12
0.91397849462
```

### Exponents

To work with exponents, use the ‘**’ operator followed by the degree for the number.

```Test1 = 5
Test2 = Test1**2
print(Test2)
```

Output:

```25
```

### Modulo Operator

The Modulo Operator can be very useful for certain calculations. It returns the remainder of the division of two numbers.

```test1 = 5
test2 = 3
test_r = test1%test2
print(test_r)
```

Output:

```2
```

Here, the variable test_r takes the value of the remainder of 5 divided by 3. This is 2, so the output will be 2.
