Arithmetic Operations

This chapter provides tutorial examples and notes about VBScript arithmetic operations. Topics include introductions to 8 arithmetic operations: Addition (+), Subtraction (-), Unary Negation (-), Multiplication (*), Division (/), Integer Division (\), Modulus (Mod), and Exponentiation (^); detailed rules how each arithmetic operation works.

Introduction of Arithmetic Operations

"+" - Arithmetic Addition Operation

"-" - Arithmetic Subtraction Operation

"*" - Arithmetic Multiplication Operation

"/" - Arithmetic Division Operation

"\" - Arithmetic Integer Division Operation

Conclusions:

- 8 arithmetic operations are supported in VBScript: Addition (+), Subtraction (-), Unary Negation (-), Multiplication (*), Division (/), Integer Division (\), Modulus (Mod), and Exponentiation (^).
- Operands of arithmetic operations should be numeric values, or other values that could be converted numeric values.
- The returning value subtype will be determined by the value range and subtypes of operands.
