# Arithmetic Operations 2

Understand the various pandas methods used for performing arithmetic operations.

We'll cover the following

## Arithmetic Operations

Having covered the basic arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication, let's explore the rest of the operations, which are division, modulo, and power.

Note: The details, methods, and examples explained for add() in the earlier lesson also apply to the pandas arithmetic operations here, therefore detailed explanations won’t be repeated in this lesson.

### Division—floating point and integer

There are two types of pandas methods related to the division arithmetic operation, based on whether the operation is a floating point or integer division.

• Floating point division: The div() or truediv() (both methods give the same result)

• Integer division: The floordiv()

The floating point division methods correspond to the arithmetic operator / , while the integer division corresponds to //. Floating point division is used when the operands are floating point numbers, which results in a floating point number with decimal places. For example, we can perform a floating point division on all the float values in the Iris dataset, shown below:
