# Arithmetic Operators

With this example we are going to demonstrate how to use the arithmetic operators in Java. The arithmetic operators supported by the Java programming language are the `Additive` operator (also used for String concatenation), the `Subtraction` operator, the `Multiplication` operator, the `Division` operator, and the `Remainder` operator. In short, to use the arithmetic operators you should:

• Use the `Additive` operator to add variables.
• Use the `Subtraction` operator to subtract variables.
• Use the `Multiplication` operator to multiply variables.
• Use the `Division` operator to divide variables.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:

```package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.basics;

public class ArithmeticOperatorsExample {

public static void main(String[] args) {

int i = 30 + 20;
int j = i - 5;
int k = j * 2;
double l = k / 6;

System.out.println("i = " + i);
System.out.println("j = " + j);
System.out.println("k = " + k);
System.out.println("l = " + l);

}

}
```

Output:

``````i = 50
j = 45
k = 90
l = 15.0```
```

This was an example of how to use the arithmetic operators in Java.
