## C – Assignment Operators

#### Assignment operators in C:

• In C programs, values for the variables are assigned using assignment operators.
• For example, if the value “10” is to be assigned for the variable “sum”, it can be assigned as “sum = 10;”
• Other assignment operators in C language are given below.
 Operators Example Explanation Simple assignment operator = sum=10 10 is assigned to variable sum Compound assignment operators += sum+=10 This_is_same_as_sum=sum+10………… -= sum-=10 This is same as sum = sum-10 *= sum*=10 This is same as sum = sum*10 /+ sum/=10 This is same as sum = sum/10 %= sum%=10 This is same as sum = sum%10 &= sum&=10 This is same as sum = sum&10 ^= sum^=10 This is same as sum = sum^10

#### Example program for C assignment operators:

• In this program, values from 0 – 9 are summed up and total “45” is displayed as output.
• Assignment operators such as “=” and “+=” are used in this program to assign the values and to sum up the values.
```# include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
int Total=0,i;
for(i=0;i<10;i++)
{
Total+=i; // This is same as Total = Toatal+i
}
printf("Total = %d", Total);
}```

#### Output:

 Total = 45

 S.no Types of Operators Description 1 Arithmetic_operators These are used to perform mathematical calculations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and modulus 2 Assignment_operators These are used to assign the values for the variables in C programs. 3 Relational operators These operators are used to compare the value of two variables. 4 Logical operators These operators are used to perform logical operations on the given two variables. 5 Bit wise operators These operators are used to perform bit operations on given two variables. 6 Conditional (ternary) operators Conditional operators return one value if condition is true and returns another value is condition is false. 7 Increment / decrement operators These operators are used to either increase or decrease the value of the variable by one. 8 Special operators &, *, sizeof( ) and ternary operators
