x % yModulus: The remainder when x is divided by y
x++, ++xAdds one to x
x--, --xSubtracts one from x
-xReverses the sign on x


x = ySets x to the value of y
x += ySame as x = x + y
x -= ySame as x = x - y
x *= ySame as x = x * y
x /= ySame as x = x / y
x %= ySame as x = x % y

Adding to an array

.length propertyAdds one value to the end of an array
push()Adds one or more items to the end of an array
unshift()Adds one or more items to the beginning of an array.

x === yReturns true if x and y are identical
x != yReturns true if x and y are not equal
x !== yReturns true if x and y are not identical
x > yReturns true if x is greater than y
x >= yReturns true if x is greater than or equal to y
x < yReturns true if x is less than y
x <= yReturns true if x is less than or equal to y
x && yReturns true if both x and y are true
x || yReturns true if either x or y are true
!xReturns true if x is false
