Operators are used to performing operations on any given data stored inside variables.

And arithmetic operators makes mathematical operations possible on operands in a program.

Division 2.0
``````

• Floor division - `//`: rounds of the result to the nearest whole number.
• Modulus - `%`: produces the remainder of the numbers Output:
``````Floor Division 3
Modulus 1
``````
• Exponentiation - ** : produces the power of given numbers Output:
``````Exponentiation 0.025517964452291125
Exponentiation 37.78343433288728
