A binary operator is an operator which takes 2 arguments, as opposed to a unary operations, which take 1 argument.

Below is the list of binary operators:

 Operator Effect = may be used for assignment or comparing 2 values like the == operator := forced assignment <> not equal & concatenation of strings * multiplication *= multiplication of the left operand by the right operand followed by assignment of the result to the left operand + addition += addition of the left operand to the right operand followed by assignment of the result to the left operand - subtraction -= subtraction of the right operand from the left operand followed by assignment of the result to the left operand / division /= division of the left operand by the right operand followed by assignment of the result to the left operand < less than <= less than or equal to == equality > more than >= more than or equal to and logical AND && logical AND. The use of AND is preferred for readability. or logical OR || logical OR. The use of OR is preferred for readability.
