C truly is much more of a “programming environment” than just a language. Using this environment, a single developer can quickly create a simple application; a team of developers can create a sophisticated, distributed application.
The main reason why C is so popular and powerful is the same reason behind the success of Windows. Microsoft took a complex technology (writing computer programs) and made it easier to use through a graphical interface. Suppose you have to write a program for your company. In a visual programming environment, you can quickly design the windows that the user sees by drawing and arranging them just as you would lay out elements for a newspaper.
These are the simple operators used in daily mathematics. These include the addition ‘+’ operator, subtraction ‘-’ operator, multiplication ‘*’ operator, division ‘/’ operator and the modulus ‘%’ operator.
