**Binary operators use infix notation**

According to the jargon,** binary** operators in C++ use *
infix* notation. This means that the operator appears between its operands.

Although I won't identify and discuss them in this lesson,
there are also some **unary** operators that use *prefix* notation and
**unary** operators that use *postfix* notation.

For prefix notation, the operator appears before *(to the
left of)* its operand.

For postfix notation, the operator appears after *(to the
right of)* its operand.
