Arithmetic Operations

  • Robert E. Beasley


An arithmetic operation is a process that takes one or more input values (i.e., operands), performs some kind of mathematical function with those values, and then assigns the result to an output. The most basic arithmetic operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. However, there are many more arithmetic operations, including comparison operations (e.g., minimum, maximum), exponential operations (e.g., kn), logarithmic operations (e.g., log2 n, ln n), magnitude operations (e.g., absolute value), power operations (e.g., nk), radical operations (e.g., square root, cube root), rounding operations (e.g., round, floor, ceiling, truncate), and trigonometric operations (e.g., sine, cosine, tangent).
