# Operators in LibreOffice Calc

You can use the following operators in LibreOffice Calc:

## Arithmetical Operators

These operators return numerical results.

ئۇلىغۇچى

ئاتى

+ (Plus)

قوشۇش

1+1

- (Minus)

ئېلىش

2-1

- (Minus)

Negation

-5

* (asterisk)

كۆپەيتىش

2*2

/ (Slash)

تارماق

9/3

% (Percent)

پىرسەنت

15%

^ (Caret)

Exponentiation

3^2

## Comparative operators

These operators return either true or false.

ئۇلىغۇچى

ئاتى

= (equal sign)

تەڭ

A1=B1

چوڭ

چوڭ

A1>B1

< (Less than)

كىچىك

A1<B1

چوڭ ياكى تەڭ

چوڭ ياكى تەڭ

A1>=B1

كىچىك ياكى تەڭ

كىچىك ياكى تەڭ

A1<=B1

<> (Inequality)

Inequality

A1<>B1

## Text operators

The operator combines separate texts into one text.

ئۇلىغۇچى

ئاتى

#### Example

& (And)

text concatenation AND

"Sun" & "day" is "Sunday"

## Reference operators

These operators return a cell range of zero, one or more cells.

Range has the highest precedence, then intersection, and then finally union.

ئۇلىغۇچى

ئاتى

#### Example

: (Colon)

دائىرە

A1:C108

! (Exclamation point)

ئوتتۇرىچە قىممەت

SUM(A1:B6!B5:C12)

Calculates the sum of all cells in the intersection; in this example, the result yields the sum of cells B5 and B6.

~ (Tilde)

Concatenation or union

Takes two references and returns a reference list, which is a concatenation of the left reference followed by the right reference. Double entries are referenced twice. See note below this table. Reference concatenation using a tilde character was implemented lately. When a formula with the tilde operator exists in a document that is opened in old versions of the software, an error is returned. A reference list is not allowed inside an array expression.
