The + arithmetic operator performs addition
or indicates a positive numeric value.

## Example(s)

Adds `1` to the
variable, `x`.

x = x + 1

Adds the values in the variables `price` and `tax` and assigns the result to `subtotal`.

subtotal = price + tax

This is a complex arithmetic statement that first multiplies
the `unit.cost` by `qty` and then adds
the results to the variable called `tax`. The left
and right parentheses are used to explicitly group precedence.

subtotal = tax + (unit.cost * qty)
