# Python Guide #5: Numbers

In this tutorial, I will show you how you can perform math operations in Python on numbers.

## Addition

```
a = 5
b = 10
c = a + b
print(c)
```

Output:

```
15
```

```
a = 5
a += 10
print(a)
```

Output:

```
15
```

## Subtraction

```
a = 10
b = 5
c = a - b
print(c)
```

Output:

```
5
```

```
a = 10
a -= 5
print(a)
```

Output:

```
5
```

## Multiplication

```
a = 10
b = 5
c = a * b
print(c)
```

Output:

```
50
```

```
a = 10
a *= 5
print(a)
```

Output:

```
50
```

## Division

```
a = 10
b = 2
c = a / b
print(c)
```

Output:

```
5
```

## Exponent

```
a = 2 ** 3
# That means 2 to the power of 3
print(a)
```

Output

```
8
```
