In math, an operand is a number being worked on in an equation. In 1 + 2 = 3, 1 and 2 are operands. (1 + 2) together is also an operand.

Notation[change | change source]

In (3 + 5) × 2, (3 + 5) and 2 are the operands. (3 + 5) has operands that are separate: 3 and 5.

There are three ways to set operands: 1 + 2, + 1 2, and 1 2 +. The first of those is used the most.
