Operators

In C#, operators are nothing but mathematical or logical operators that tell the compiler to perform a specific operation. For instance, a multiplication (*) operator tells the compiler to multiply; on the other hand, the logical and (&&) operator checks both the operands. We can divide C# operators into broader types, as shown in the following table:

+

-
