Using the Additive Operators

The following examples, which illustrate the addition and subtraction operators, use these declarations:

int i = 4, j;
float x[10];
float *px;

These statements are equivalent:

px = &x[4 + i];
px = &x[4] + i;  

The value of i is multiplied by the length of a float and added to &x[4]. The resulting pointer value is the address of x[8].

j = &x[i] - &x[i-2];

In this example, the address of the third element of x (given by x[i–2]) is subtracted from the address of the fifth element of x (given by x[i]). The difference is divided by the length of a float; the result is the integer value 2.
