When learning Small Basic (and most all programming languages), you'll need to know a few quick things about binary operators.
The arithmetic operators (+, –, *, /) are called binary operators because they require two operands: one operand on each side of the operator.
5 - 3
In that example...
5 and 3 are the operands
"-" is the binary operator
The (–) operator is also used to negate a number (like –5). In this case, –5 is called a unary operator, because it has only one operand.
