# JavaScript Math operators

JavaScript provides many built-in math operators that allow you to perform arithmetic operations on numeric values. Here are some of the most commonly used math operators in JavaScript:

1. Addition (`+`): The addition operator is used to add two or more numeric values. For example, `2 + 3` will return `5`.
2. Subtraction (`-`): The subtraction operator is used to subtract one numeric value from another. For example, `5 - 2` will return `3`.
3. Multiplication (`*`): The multiplication operator is used to multiply two or more numeric values. For example, `2 * 3` will return `6`.
4. Division (`/`): The division operator is used to divide one numeric value by another. For example, `6 / 2` will return `3`.
5. Modulus (`%`): The modulus operator is used to return the remainder of a division operation. For example, `5 % 2` will return `1`.
6. Increment (`++`): The increment operator is used to increase a numeric value by 1. For example, `let x = 2; x++;` will set the value of `x` to `3`.
7. Decrement (`--`): The decrement operator is used to decrease a numeric value by 1. For example, `let x = 3; x--;` will set the value of `x` to `2`.

## JavaScript Math operators example

Simple example code with math operators to perform a basic calculation:

``````<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<script>
let x = 10;
let y = 5;

let addition = x + y;
console.log(`The result of x + y is: \${addition}`);

let subtraction = x - y;
console.log(`The result of x - y is: \${subtraction}`);

let multiplication = x * y;
console.log(`The result of x * y is: \${multiplication}`);

let division = x / y;
console.log(`The result of x / y is: \${division}`);

let modulus = x % y;
console.log(`The result of x % y is: \${modulus}`);

let increment = ++x;
console.log(`The result of ++x is: \${increment}`);

let decrement = --y;
console.log(`The result of --y is: \${decrement}`);

</script>
</body>
</html>``````
