Arithmetic operators

The following arithmetic operators work on numbers and return a Number:
  • addition: 1 + 3
  • subtraction: 1 - 3
  • multiplication: 3 * 2
  • integer division: 7 / 3
  • modulo is available through the math library

Relational operators

The following relational operators work on numbers and return a Boolean:
  • equality: (3 + 1) = 4
  • inequality: 3 != 4
  • less or equal than: 3 <= 4
  • less than: 3 < 4
  • greater or equal than : 4 >= 3
  • greater than: 4 > 3
