Working with Operands, Expressions, and Statements

Operators are symbols and keywords that change, access, create, remove, analyze, and organize data. Most operators come from the fields of mathematics and logic. A number of them are old friends from grade-school arithmetic. For instance, the multiplication operator (*) multiplies two values; the addition operator (+) adds two values; the division operator (/) divides one value by another.

In some instances, an operator’s form in ActionScript is different from that of grade-school arithmetic. For instance, the ActionScript multiplication operator is an asterisk (*), not ×. Similarly, the division operator is a forward slash (/), not the ÷ symbol.
