In mathematics, an operation is a function which takes in some input(s) and produce 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 involved when solving math problems.

There are a few other operations aside from the elementary operations, including raising numbers to exponents, taking the root and applying the logarithm.
