# Python 101: Operators

Python… It’s simple, it’s easily readable, and it’s just generally super powerful! What if I told you there is a certain group of symbols called “operators” that python quite literally would be NOTHING without.

Yep, you guessed it. We are learning about those today! Seeya down below. (And no, not h*ll)

### Basic Operators:

```
'''
> BASIC OPERATORS
SET TO: = [Set a value or variable.]
EQUAL TO: == [Compare values, return true if they are the same.]
NOT EQUAL TO: != [Compare values, return true if they are different.]
> COMPARISON OPERATORS
GREATER THAN: >
LESS THAN: <
GREATER THAN/EQUAL TO: >=
LESS THAN/EQUAL TO: <=
> MATHIMATIC OPERATORS
ADDITION: +
SUBTRACTION: -
MULTIPLICATION: *
DIVISION: /
MODULUS: %
EXPONENTIATION: **
FLOOR DIVISION: //
> LOGIC OPERATORS
AND: "and" -> Aslong as both values are true, return True. Else False.
OR: "or" -> Aslong as one value is true, return True.
NOT: "not" -> Returns true if a value is NOT equal to another value.
IS: "is" -> Checks if a variable is the same as another. (Similar to ==)
NOT IN: "not in" -> Checks if an item is not in a certain location.
IS NOT: "is not" -> Compares the memory location of two objects.
'''
```

There are some more operators, but they aren’t as important as the ones above. At least in most situations. You should also know about IF statements. It’s simple! IF (value1) == (value2), then it will return True. Else return False. And yep, we can replace it with: IF (value1 is value2), then it will return True. Well, that is of course if it contains the same value AND type.
