C# Operators
C# provides a large set of operators, which are symbols that specify which operations to perform in an expression. Operations on integral types such as ==, !=, <, >, <=, >=, binary +, binary , ^, &, , ~, ++, , and sizeof() are generally allowed on enumerations. In addition, many operators can be overloaded by the user, thus changing their meaning when applied to a userdefined type.
The following table lists the C# operators grouped in order of precedence. Operators within each group have equal precedence.

Arithmetic Overflow
The arithmetic operators (+, , *, /) can produce results that are outside the range of possible values for the numeric type involved. You should refer to the section on a particular operator for details, but in general:
Integer arithmetic overflow either throws an OverflowException or discards the most significant bits of the result. Integer division by zero always throws a DivideByZeroException.
Floatingpoint arithmetic overflow or division by zero never throws an exception, because floatingpoint types are based on IEEE 754 and so have provisions for representing infinity and NaN (Not a Number).
Decimal arithmetic overflow always throws an OverflowException. Decimal division by zero always throws a DivideByZeroException.
When integer overflow occurs, what happens depends on the execution context, which can be checked or unchecked. In a checked context, an OverflowException is thrown. In an unchecked context, the most significant bits of the result are discarded and execution continues. Thus, C# gives you the choice of handling or ignoring overflow.
In addition to the arithmetic operators, integraltype to integraltype casts can cause overflow, for example, casting a long to an int, and are subject to checked or unchecked execution. However, bitwise operators and shift operators never cause overflow.
