Operators in JavaScript
JavaScript defines operators for arithmetic, comparisons, Boolean logic, assignment, and bit manipulation, along with some miscellaneous operators, including the ternary conditional operator.
JavaScript offers a variety of operators to perform different operations such as arithmetic, comparisons, logical operations, assignment, and bit manipulation. Let’s go through these types with examples:
 Arithmetic Operators: These are used to perform mathematical operations:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
 let a = 10, b = 5;
console.log(a + b); // Addition, outputs: 15
console.log(a  b); // Subtraction, outputs: 5
console.log(a * b); // Multiplication, outputs: 50
console.log(a / b); // Division, outputs: 2
console.log(a % b); // Modulus (Remainder), outputs: 0

 Comparison Operators: These are used to compare two values:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
 let a = 10, b = 5;
console.log(a == b); // Equal to, outputs: false
console.log(a != b); // Not equal to, outputs: true
console.log(a === b); // Equal value and equal type, outputs: false
console.log(a !== b); // Not equal value or not equal type, outputs: true
console.log(a > b); // Greater than, outputs: true
console.log(a < b); // Less than, outputs: false
console.log(a >= b); // Greater than or equal to, outputs: true
console.log(a <= b); // Less than or equal to, outputs: false

 Boolean Logic Operators: These are used to perform logical operations:
1
2
3
4
5
 let a = true, b = false;
console.log(a && b); // Logical AND, outputs: false
console.log(a  b); // Logical OR, outputs: true
console.log(!a); // Logical NOT, outputs: false

 Assignment Operators: These are used to assign values to variables:
1
2
3
4
5
6
 let a = 10; // Assignment, a becomes 10
a += 5; // Addition assignment, a becomes 15
a = 5; // Subtraction assignment, a becomes 10
a *= 5; // Multiplication assignment, a becomes 50
a /= 5; // Division assignment, a becomes 10
a %= 3; // Modulus assignment, a becomes 1

 Bit Manipulation Operators: These operators work on 32 bit numbers and perform bitlevel operations:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
 let a = 5; // Binary: 0101
let b = 3; // Binary: 0011
console.log(a & b); // Bitwise AND, outputs: 1 (Binary: 0001)
console.log(a  b); // Bitwise OR, outputs: 7 (Binary: 0111)
console.log(a ^ b); // Bitwise XOR, outputs: 6 (Binary: 0110)
console.log(~a); // Bitwise NOT, outputs: 6 (Binary: 1010)
console.log(a << 1); // Left shift, outputs: 10 (Binary: 1010)
console.log(a >> 1); // Right shift, outputs: 2 (Binary: 0010)

 Miscellaneous Operators: These include the ternary operator,
typeof
operator, etc:
1
2
3
4
 let a = 10, b = 5;
console.log(a > b ? 'a is greater' : 'b is greater'); // Ternary operator, outputs: "a is greater"
console.log(typeof a); // typeof operator, outputs: "number"

Each operator serves different purposes and helps
