# Operation (mathematics)

Jump to: navigation, search

In mathematics, an operation is a function which takes some input (or inputs) and produces an output.[1] Some of the most common operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division,[2] all of which take two inputs and produce an output. These are called binary operations,[3] and are often used when solving math problems.

There are more operations than these, including raising numbers to exponents, taking the root and applying the logarithm.
