Assignment and Variables

Variables store values. The process of declaring a variable that stores a value is called assignment.
In python a variable is created when a value is assigned.

Here is an example:

#Assignment x = 5 print(x) y = "text" print(y) type(y)

In the example above we created two variables – x,y.

  • X is an integer.
  • Y is a string.
We can check the type of each variable using the type() function

Exercise
