# what is an operator in c?

Hey there, Do you know? What is an operator in c? If not, then let me explain you the concept of an operator in c with operator priority and associativity

## What is an operator?

Declaration gives the list of variables with a different type of values to be used, the operator is something which tells what to be done to the declared variables.

### Every operator in c has

• Priority
• Associativity

### Why  6/5 gives  1 not 1.2 in C program?

Do you know, if we calculate 6/5 gives 1 not 1.2 in C

Similarly, 4/8 gives 1 not 0.5

Do you know why? Because both values are integers then C evaluate result also int not float but when one value is int and another value is float then it evaluates result also as float, so  6.5/5.5 gives 1.1818 which is obvious.

Still confused! Have you ever checked the arthimatic in c, if not, then check now

#include <stdio.h>

int main()

{

int k;

k=66/30;

printf(“%d”,k);

return 0;

}

Arithmetic in c        result

K=12/18                      0

K=20/42                      0

K=72/20                      3

K=88/48                      1

K=44/66                     0

K=88/25                    3

K=66/30                     2

normal Arithmetic    result

K=12/18                      0.666

K=20/42                      0.4761

K=72/20                      3.6

K=88/48                      1.833

K=44/66                     0.666

K=88/25                    3.52

K=66/30                     2.2

Observe the results carefully you will notice, arithmetic in C is different than the normal arithmetic because when both values are integers then C evaluate result as int not float

So, when ever you do any arithmetic operation in C some problems may crop up.
