# JavaScript addition, subtraction, multiplication, division | Simple Examples

Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are basic Arithmetic operations in JavaScript.

Addition Code: The addition operator (`+`) adds numbers:

``````var x = 5;
var y = 5;
var z = x + y;``````

Subtraction code: The subtraction operator (`-`) subtracts numbers.

``````var x = 10;
var y = 5;
var z = x - y;``````

Multiplication Code: The multiplication operator (`*`) multiplies numbers.

``````var x = 5;
var y = 2;
var z = x * y;``````

Division Code: The division operator (`/`) divides numbers.

``````var x = 10;
var y = 2;
var z = x / y;``````

## JavaScript addition, subtraction, multiplication, division Examples

HTML complete example code for all basic athematic operations in JS (JavaScript). Users can choose or enter and select the option to calculate value dynamically.

In the example we used bootstrap and jQuery.

``````<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<link href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

<script>
function Calc(){
var val1 = document.getElementById("val1").value;
var val2 = document.getElementById("val2").value;
var opt = document.getElementById("opt").value;

var ans = eval(val1 + opt + val2);
document.getElementById("ans").value = ans;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<div class="row">
