Hello friends, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we are going to have a look at few Common Operators in C#. It’s 4th tutorial in C# series and before going forward, we have to first understand the working operation of these C# operators.

We have a lot of operators in C# but I have discussed few of them, which are most commonly used. If you got into any trouble then ask in comments. So, let’s get started with Common Operators in C#:

#### Common Operators in C#

- Operators are used to create a link, relation or operation between two entities/variables. Few of these C# operators are as follows:
- Assignment Operator ( = )
- Arithmetic Operators ( + , – , * , / , % )
- Comparison Operators ( == , != , > , < , >= , <= )
- Conditional Operators ( && , | | )
- Ternary Operator ( ? : )
- Null Coalescing Operator ( ?? )
- Escape Sequence ( / )
- Verbatim Literal ( @ )

- Let’s discuss them one by one in detail:

##### 1. Assignment Operator ( = )

**Assignment Operator**is used to assign a value from one entity to another.- Let’s say we initialize an integer with value 5, so what we need to write is
**int i = 5;**so this assignment operator has assigned a value of 5 to integer i.

##### 2. Arithmetic Operators ( + , – , * , / , % )

**Arithmetic Operators****( + , – , * , / , % )**are used for performing different mathematical operations between two entities/variables.- Each arithmetic operator has its own mathematical operation associated with it. For example:
**( + )**is used to add two numbers i.e.**int a = 5 + 10;**so compiler will first apply the arithmetic operator (+) and will add 5 & 10 and after that will use assignment operator to assign the value 15 to variable a.

**( – )**is used to subtract two numbers i.e.**int b = 10 – 5;**result will be 5.**( * )**is use to multiply two numbers i.e.**int c = 10 * 5;**result will be 50.**( / )**is used to divide two numbers i.e.**int d = 10 / 2;**result will be 5.**( % )**is used to get the remainder of two numbers i.e.**int e = 22 % 4;**result will be 2.

##### 3. Comparison Operators ( == , != , > , < , >= , <= )

**Comparison Operators ( == , != , > , < , >= , <= )**are used to compare two entities with one another.- We will discuss them in detail in Loops section while discussing if loop.
- a == b, it will check whether a is equal to b.
- a != b, a is not equal to b.
- a > b, a is greater than b.
- a < b, a is less than b.
- a >= b, a is greater than or equal to b.
- a <= b, a is less than or equal to b.
- I am using few Comparison operators in this right figure.

##### 4. Conditional Operators ( && , | | )

- Conditional Operators ( && , | | ) are used to create a relation between two conditions.
- This one will also be discussed in more detail in IF Loops section.
- && , It is pronounced as AND, this operator makes sure that both conditions must be true.
- | | , It is pronounced as OR, this operator returns TRUE if either of the two conditions is true.

- I have placed a conditional operator in right figure, I have placed a check that value must be greater than 10 and less than 20.

##### 5. Ternary Operator ( ? : )

- Ternary operator is one of the coolest feature of C# and comes quite handy at times.
- It’s a simple form of if loop, which reduces the IF Else Loop code in single line. We will discuss it in C# IF Loop lecture.

##### 6. Null Coalescing Operator ( ?? )

- Null Coalescing Operator ( ?? ) is used to convert nullable value into non-nullable value.
- Let’s say we have two integers a and b defined as:

int? a = 15; (nullable variable)

int b = 0; (non-nullable variable)

- Now we want to save value of a into b so if you write a = b; compiler will generate an error.
- So, in order to do that you need to use Null Coalescing Operator ( ?? ) as follow:

int b = a ?? 0;

- if the value of a is null, then b will become 0. It’s called the default value, you can set it to anything, I’ve made it 0.

##### Complete Code

- Here’s the complete code used in this tutorial:

using System;

namespace TEPProject

{

class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

Console.Write(“Enter Numer 1: “);

int Num1 = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

Console.Write(“Enter Numer 2: “);

int Num2 = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());int Total = Num1 + Num2;

if (Total > 10 && Total < 25)

{

Console.WriteLine(“Total count is {0}”, Total);

}

else

{

Console.WriteLine(“Total count is less than 10 or greater than 25”);

}

}

}

}
