Most of the problems need some computations to be performed on the input or intermediate data that are numeric in nature. The Arithmetic verbs are used to perform these computations. All these verbs can hold either identifiers or numeric literals or both. In the case of identifiers, they should be elementary numeric fields, and the identifiers used after the GIVING option should be edited or unedited numeric fields. Some of the arithmetic verbs in their most elementary forms are ADD Verb, SUBTRACT Verb, MULTIPLY Verb, DIVIDE Verb, and COMPUTE Verb.
