What it Does

The Assignment shape is used to store the result of a calculation into a variable. This is one of the most common tasks found in programs.


The example, to the right, declares two variables: area (which stores real numbers) and radius (which stores integers). It then uses an Assignment Statement to set the 'radius' to 7. Finally, it computes the area of a circle and stores the result in 'area'.
