Java Script Operators


An expression is a part of statement that is evaluated as value.An expression can be any combination of variables, operators andother expressions. In JavaScript there are four types ofexpressions:

  • Assignment expression
  • Arithmetic expression
  • String expression
  • Logical expression
  • Assignment expression

This expression is used to assign a value to a variable.Example: avgMarks=55, the value 55 has been assigned to thevariable avgMarks using assignment operator (=)

Arithmetic Expressions

Expressions in which arithmetic operations are performed arecalled arithmetic expression.Example: netPrice=1200+12

String Expression

Expressions in which operations are performed on string arecalled string expression.Example: mesg= "Hello," + "Mr. Rakesh", Here "+" string operatorconcatenate two strings "Hello, " and "Mr. Rakesh" results "Hello,Mr. Rakesh" that is assigned to variable mesg.

Logical Expression
