# Java – Assignment Operator2 min read

Assignment operator is used to assigning a value to any variable. This operator assigns the value of the righthand side of an operator to the lefthand side. Various assignment operator in Java:
These are the short version formed by combining the two operators.

For example Instead of writing, we can write `a+= 5`.

• Assignment operator: ‘=’ This operator assigns the value on the right to the variable on the left.
`a = 20; B = 30; Ch = 'cha';`
• Add AND assignment operator: ‘+=’ This operator first adds the current value of the variable on the left to the value on the right and then assigns the result to the variable on the left.
`c+=7; a+=b;`
• Subtract AND assignment operator: ‘-=’ This operator first subtracts the current value of the variable on the left from the value on the right and then assigns the result to the variable on the left.
`c-=7; a-=b;`
• Multiply AND assignment operator: ‘*=’ This operator first multiplies the current value of the variable on the left to the value on the right and then assigns the result to the variable on the left.
`c*=7; a*=b;`
• Divide AND assignment operator: ‘/=’ This operator first divides the current value of the variable on the left by the value on the right and then assigns the result to the variable on the left.
`c/=7; a/=b;`
• Modulus AND assignment operator: ‘%=’ It takes modulus using two operands and assigns the result to the left operand.
`C %= A is equivalent to C = C % A ;`
• Right shift AND assignment operator: ‘>>=’ This operator is used for Right shift Operation.
`C >>= 2 ;`
• Left shift AND assignment operator: ‘<<=’ This operator is used for Left shift Operation.
`C <<= 2 ;`
• Bitwise AND assignment operator: ‘&=’ This operator is used for Bitwise AND Operations.
`C &= 2;`
• Bitwise exclusive OR and assignment operator: ‘^= This operator is used for Bitwise exclusive OR Operations.
`C ^= 2;`
• Bitwise inclusive OR and assignment operator: ‘|= This operator is used for Bitwise inclusive OR.
`C |= 2;`
