## Assignment Operators >

Assignment operators can be used with all arithmetic, bitwise and bit shift operators.

 Operator Description = assignment operator x = y  assigns y to x. += Add AND assignment operator x -= y  is equivalent to (x = x-y) -= Subtract AND assignment operator x -= y  is equivalent to (x = x-y) *= Multiply AND assignment operator x *= y  is equivalent to (x = x*y) /= Divide AND assignment operator x /= y  is equivalent to (x = x/y)

Program 5 to demonstrate Assignment operators
