Operand

In all computer languages, expressions consist of two types of components: operands and operators. Operands are the objects that are manipulated and operators are the symbols that represent specific actions. For example, in the expression

 5 + x 

x and 5 are operands and + is an operator. All expressions have at least one operand.
