How do we assign values to variables in Python?

PythonProgramming

Python variables do not need explicit declaration to reserve memory space. The declaration happens automatically when you assign a value to a variable. The equal sign (=) is used to assign values to variables.

The operand to the left of the = operator is the name of the variable and the operand to the right of the = operator is the value stored in the variable.

example

counter = 42 # An integer assignment
speed = 60.0 # A floating point
name = "Google" # A string

print(counter)
print(miles)
print(name)

Output

This will give the output

42
60.0
Google

example

You can also assign multiple variables in a single line.

a, b, c = 1, 2, "Hello"
print(a)
print(b)
print(c)

Output

This will give the output

1
2
Hello
