Traditional arithmetic operations are supported on numeric types in LOLCODE:

``````BTW Addition
SUM OF x AN y

BTW Subtraction
DIFF OF x AN y

BTW Multiplication
PRODUKT OF x AN y

BTW Division
QUOSHUNT OF x AN y``````

Let’s start with the two most basic:

• `SUM OF`: Creates the sum of `x` and `y` (equivalent to `x + y` in most languages)
• `DIFF OF`: Subtracts `y` from `x` (equivalent to `x - y` in most languages)

If either number in an operation is a `NUMBAR`, the result will be too. Otherwise the result will be a `NUMBR`.

``````BTW equates to 7
SUM OF 3 AN 4``````

Multiple operations can be within the same statement, and will follow the traditional order as with other programming languages.

``````BTW equates to 5
DIFF OF SUM OF 3 AN 4 AN 2``````

Instructions

1.
