Addition is denoted by + symbol. The addition of zero to any number results in the same number. Addition of a negative number is equivalent to subtraction of the absolute value of that number.SubtractionSubtraction is the inverse of addition. The subtraction operator will reduce the first operand (minuend) by the second operand (subtrahend).

Multiplication of one always results in the same number.DivisionDivision is the method to determine the quotient of two numbers. Division is the opposite of multiplication. Division is the dividend divided by the divisor.Arithmetic PropertiesThe main arithmetic properties are Associative, Commutative, and Distributive. These properties are used to manipulate expressions and to create equivalent expressions in a new form.AssociativeThe Associative property is related to grouping rules.
