## Scala Operator

The following types of operators are supported in Scala programming language.

- Arithmetic Operators
- Relational Operators
- Logical Operators
- Bitwise Operators
- Assignment Operators

Let’s go through with each of them one by one with examples.

### Scala Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators include the basic operations like Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division and Modulus. The arithmetic operators supported are +,-,*,/ and %.

Operator | Description |

+ | Adds two operands |

– | Subtracts the second operand from the first |

* | Multiplies two operands |

/ | Divides the numerator by the denominator |

% | Returns the remainder |

Here is an example of scala arithmetic operator.

```
Copy
object Arithmetic {
def main(args:Array[String]) {
var x = 40;
var y = 20;
println("Addition of x + y = " + (x + y));
println("Subtraction of x - y = " + (x - y));
println("Multiplication of x * y = " + (x * y));
println("Division of x / y = " + (x / y));
println("Modulus of x % y = " + (x % y));
}
}
```

We are defining an object Arithmetic with the main method which accepts argument of String type of array. x and y variables are declared with values 40 and 20 respectively. We are printing the result by performing operations x+y, x-y, x*y, x/y, x%y.

Note that in Scala unlike in Java we can directly create an object without first creating a class.

Run the above code after creating object Arithmetic by typing `Arithmetic.main(null)`

in Scala shell.

**Output:**

```
Copy
scala> Arithmetic.main(null)
Addition of x + y = 60
Subtraction of x - y = 20
Multiplication of x * y = 800
Division of x / y = 2
Modulus of x % y = 0
```

### Scala Relational Operators

Relational operators include ==,!=,>,<,>= and <=. The following table shows the list of relational operators in scala.

Operator | Description |

== | Checks whether the two operands are equal or not and returns true if they are equal. |

!= | Checks if the two operands are equal or not and returns true if they are not equal. |

> | Checks if the first operand is greater than the second and returns true if the first operand is greater than the second operand. |

< | Checks if the first operand is lesser than the second and returns true if the first operand is lesser than the second operand. |

>= | Checks whether the first operand is greater than or equal to the second operand and returns true if the first operand is greater than or equal to the second operand. |

<= | Checks whether the first operand is lesser than or equal to the second operand and returns true if the first operand is lesser than or equal to the second operand. |

Consider an example for relational operators in scala.

```
Copy
object Relational {
def main(args:Array[String]) {
var x = 10;
var y = 20;
println("Equality of x == y is : " + (x == y));
println("Not Equals of x != y is : " + (x !=y));
println("Greater than of x > y is : " + (x > y));
println("Lesser than of x < y is : " + (x < y));
println("Greater than or Equal to of x >= y is : " + (x >= y));
println("Lesser than or Equal to of x <= y is : " + (x <= y));
}
}
```

We are defining an object Relational with the main method which accepts argument of String type of array. x and y variables are declared with values 10 and 20 respectively. We are printing the result by performing operations x ==y, x!=y, x>y, x<y, x>=y and x <=y.

Run the above code by typing Relational.main(null)

**Output:**

```
Copy
scala> Relational.main(null)
Equality of x == y is : false
Not Equals of x != y is : true
Greater than of x > y is : false
Lesser than of x < y is : true
Greater than or Equal to of x >= y is : false
Lesser than or Equal to of x <= y is : true
```

### Scala Logical Operators

Logical operators include !, || and &&. The following table shows the list of logical operators supported.

Operator | Description |

! | Logical NOT operand which reverses the logical state of the operand.Returns true if the condition is satisfied |

|| | Logical OR operand which returns true if any of the two operands is non zero |

&& | Logical AND operand which returns true if both the operand are non zero |

Consider an example of scala logical operators.

```
Copy
object Logical {
def main(args: Array[String]) {
var x = false
var y = true
println("Logical Not of !(x && y) = " + !(x && y) );
println("Logical Or of x || y = " + (x || y) );
println("Logical And of x && y = " + (x &&y) );
}
}
```

We are defining an object Logical with the main method which accepts argument of String type of array. x and y are boolean variables with values false and true respectively. We are printing the result by performing operations !(x && y), x || y and x && y.

Run the above code by typing Logical.main(null)

**Output:**

```
Copy
scala> Logical.main(null)
Logical Not of !(x && y) = true
Logical Or of x || y = true
Logical And of x && y = false
```

### Bitwise Operators in Scala

Bitwise operators include &, |, ~, ^, <<, >> and >>>. The following table shows the bitwise operators supported in Scala.

Operator | Description |

& | Binary AND operator copies the bit to the result if the operator exists in both the operands. |

| | Binary OR operator copies the bit to the result if the operator exists in either of the operands. |

~ | Binary Ones Complement Operator is unary and has effects of the flipping bits. |

^ | Binary XOR operator copies if the bit is set in one of the operand but not both. |

<< | Binary Left Shift operator.The left operand value is moved left by the number of bits specified in the right operand. |

>> | Binary Right Shift operator.The left operand value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand. |

>>> | Shift right zero fill operator. The left operands value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand and shifted values are filled with zeros. |

Consider an example of bitwise operator in scala.

```
Copy
object Bitwise {
def main(args: Array[String]) {
var x = 16;
var y = 12;
var z = 0;
z = x & y;
println("Bitwise And of x & y = " + z );
z = x | y;
println("Bitwise Or of x | y = " + z );
z = x ^ y;
println("Bitwise Xor of x ^ y = " + z );
z = ~x;
println("Bitwise Ones Complement of ~x = " + z );
z = x << 2;
println("Bitwise Left Shift of x << 2 = " + z );
z = x >> 2;
println("Bitwise Right Shift of x >> 2 = " + z );
z = x >>> 2;
println("Bitwise Shift Right x >>> 2 = " + z );
}
}
```

We are defining an object Bitwise with the main method which accepts argument of String type of array. x and y are variables with values 16 and 12 respectively. We are printing the result by performing all bitwise operations.

Run the program by typing Bitwise.main(null)

**Output:**

```
Copy
scala> Bitwise.main(null)
Bitwise And of x & y = 0
Bitwise Or of x | y = 28
Bitwise Xor of x ^ y = 28
Bitwise Ones Complement of ~x = -17
Bitwise Left Shift of x << 2 = 64
Bitwise Right Shift of x >> 2 = 4
Bitwise Shift Right x >>> 2 = 4
```

### Scala Assignment Operators

Scala Assignment operators include =,+=, -=, *=, /=, %=, <<=, >>=, &=, |= and ^=.The following table shows the list of assignment operators.

Operator | Description |

= | Assigns value from right side operand to left side operand |

+= | Adds right operand to left operand and assigns the result to left operand |

-= | Subtracts right operand from the left operand and assigns the result to left operand |

*= | Multiplies right operand with the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand |

/= | Divides the left operand with the right operand and assigns the result to the left operand |

%= | Finds the modulus of two operands and assigns the result to left operand |

<<= | Left shift assignment operator.It left shifts the operand and assigns result to the left operand |

>>= | Right shift assignment operator.It rights shifts the operator and assigns the value to left operand |

&= | Bitwise AND assignment operator performs bitwise AND operation and assigns the result to left operand |

|= | Bitwise OR assignment operator performs bitwise OR operation and assigns result to left operand |

^= | Performs bitwise exclusive OR operation and assigns result to the left operand |

Consider an example for assignment operators in scala.

```
Copy
object Assignment {
def main(args: Array[String]) {
var x = 20;
var y = 30;
var z = 0;
z = x + y;
println("z= x+ y = " + z );
z+= x ;
println("Add and assignment of z += x = " + z );
z -= x ;
println("Subtract and assignment of z -= x = " + z );
z *= x ;
println("Multiplication and assignment of z *= x = " + z );
x = 20;
z = 15;
z /= x ;
println("Division and assignment of z /= x = " + z );
x = 30;
z = 15;
z %= x;
println("Modulus and assignment of z %= x = " + z );
z <<= 2;
println("Left shift and assignment of z <<= 2 = " + z );
z >>= 2;
println("Right shift and assignment of z >>= 2 = " + z );
z &= x;
println("Bitwise And assignment of z &= 2 = " +z );
z ^= x ;
println("Bitwise Xor and assignment of z ^= x = " + z );
z |= x ;
println("Bitwise Or and assignment of z |= x = " + z );
}
}
```

We are defining an object Assignment with the main method which accepts argument of String type of array. x and y are variables. We are printing the result by performing all assignment operations.

Run the above example by tying Assignment.main(null)

**Output**:

```
Copy
scala> Assignment.main(null)
z= x+ y = 50
Add and assignment of z += x = 70
Subtract and assignment of z -= x = 50
Multiplication and assignment of z *= x = 1000
Division and assignment of z /= x = 0
Modulus and assignment of z %= x = 15
Left shift and assignment of z <<= 2 = 60
Right shift and assignment of z >>= 2 = 15
Bitwise And assignment of z &= 2 = 14
Bitwise Xor and assignment of z ^= x = 16
Bitwise Or and assignment of z |= x = 30
```

That’s all for different types of Scala Operator.
