Math Operations
ADD <variable_1> AND <variable_2> TO <new_variable>
: Add two numbers.SUBTRACT <variable_1> FROM <variable_2> TO <new_variable>
: Subtract one number from another. ... Other operations like
MULTIPLY
,DIVIDE
, etc.
Example  Math Operations

Adding Numbers: Let's say you have two variables,
After executing the above, thevar1
with the value5
andvar2
with the value3
. You want to add them.result
variable will have the value8
. 
Subtracting Numbers: Consider a variable
After this operation, thenum1
with the value10
and another variablenum2
with the value4
. You want to subtractnum2
fromnum1
.difference
variable will have the value6
. 
Multiplying Numbers: If you have two variables,
Thefactor1
with the value7
andfactor2
with the value6
, and you want to multiply them.product
variable will now hold the value42
. 
Dividing Numbers: Consider you have a variable
After executing this, thedividend
with the value48
and another variabledivisor
with the value6
. You want to dividedividend
bydivisor
.quotient
variable will have the value8
.
