### Operators in C

Priority of Operators:

 Priority Operators Description 1st * / % multiplication. division. modular division 2nd + - addition, subtraction 3rd = assignment

Associativity of Operators:

 Operator Description Associativity ( ) Parentheses or function call left to right [ ] Brackets or array subscript left to right . Dot or Member selection operator left to right - > Arrow operator left to right + + - - Postfix increment/decrement left to right + + - - Prefix increment/decrement right to left + - Unary plus and minus right to left ! ~ not operator and bitwise complement right to left (type) type cast right to left * Indirecton or dereference operator right to left & Address of operator right to left sizeof Determine size in bytes right to left * / % Multiplication, division and modulus left to right + - Addition and Subtraction left to right <<  >> Bitwise left shift and right shift left to right <  <= relational less than/less than equal to left to right >  >= relational greater than/greater than equal or equal to left to right ==  != Relation equal to or not equal to left to right && Bitwise AND left to right ^ Bitwise exclusive OR left to right | Bitwise inclusive left to right && Logical AND left to right | | Logical OR left to right ? : Ternary operator right to left = Assignment operator right to left +=   -= Addition/ Subtraction assignment right to left *=   /= Multiplication/ division assignment right to left %=   &= Modulus and Bitwise assignment right to left ^= |= Bitwise exclusive/inclusive OR assignment right to left <<=   >>= right to left , comma operator left to right
• When an expression contains two operators of equal priority then it is settled using associativity of operators.

• It is of two types:
Left to Right or Right to Left.

• The above table shows the associativity of various operators.
