What Is An Expression In Programming?

An expression is any valid unit of code that resolves to a value. It can be a combination of variables, literals, operators, and function calls that produce a single value.

Here are some types of expressions in JavaScript [↗]:

  1. Arithmetic Expressions: Involving mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.

    01: let result = 10 * (5 + 3); // Arithmetic expression
  2. Logical Expressions: Involving logical operations using logical operators such as && (AND), || (OR), ! (NOT), etc.

    01: let isTrue = (true && false); // Logical expression
  3. String Concatenation: Combining strings using the + operator.

    01: let fullName = "John" + " " + "Doe"; // String concatenation expression
  4. Function Calls: Invoking functions that return values.

    01: let randomNumber = Math.random(); // Function call expression
  5. Assignment Expressions: Assigning values to variables using the = operator.

    01: let x = 10; // Assignment expression
  6. Ternary Expressions (Conditional Operator): Using the conditional operator ? : for conditional expressions.

    01: let age = 20; 02: let message = (age >= 18) ? "Adult": "Minor"; // Conditional expression
