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.
