Table of contents


You can think of a variable like a bucket used to hold or store substance, in this the substance to be stored is data to be used within a program.

Use cases and Examples

01: var x = 1; 02: var result = 2 +x; 03: console.log("result contains: ", result);

The above Javascript code has two variables namely x is assigned the value 1 and result to the sum of 2 and x which should be 3;


Variables usually can store whatever data type is available within the programming language under discussion.
