# VBScript Operators

A list of operators available in VBScript.

In previous lessons, we've used the "equals" operator to assign a value to a variable. We've also used it to perform a test against a given condition (for example, the If statements).

In VBScript, operators are used to perform an operation. For example, an operator could be used to assign a value to a variable. An operator could also be used to compare two values.

Below is a listing of VBScript operators and a brief description of them. Don't worry if you don't understand all of them at this stage - just bookmark this page for reference and return whenever you need to.

## Artithmetic Operators

Operator | Description |

+ | Addition |

- | Subtraction |

* | Multiplication |

/ | Division |

\ | Integer Division (divides two numbers and returns an integer result) |

Mod | Modulus (remainder of a division) |

^ | Exponentiation (raises the number to the power of an exponent) |

## Assignment Operator

Operator | Description |

= | Assign |

## Comparison Operators

Operator | Description |

= | Is equal to |

<> | Is not equal to |

> | Greater than |

>= | Greater than or equal to |

< | Less than |

<= | Less than or equal to |

## Logical Operators

Operator | Description |

And | Performs a logical conjunction on two expressions (if both expressions evaluate to True, result is True. If either expression evaluates to False, result is False) |

Or | Performs a logical disjunction on two expressions (if either or both expressions evaluate to True, result is True). |

Not | Performs logical negation on an expression. |

Xor | Performs a logical exclusion on two expressions (if one, and only one, of the expressions evaluates to True, result is True. However, if either expression is Null, result is also Null). |

## Concatenation Operators

Operator | Description |

& | Concatenate (join two strings together) |

+ | Adds two numbers together |
