I tend to think that neither one is important enough to
include in the tutorial.  I think that neither operation
is part of what people need to know, when they are at
the very basic level that the tutorial aims to teach.

But I'm not going to argue about it.

To teach this to the sort of people that need the tutorial
calls for walking the reader through an example.  That would require
a hundred lines, or maybe 200.
