# Arithmetic Operations 2

Understand the various pandas methods used for performing arithmetic operations.

## 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:
