Variables are used to store values (name = "John") or expressions (sum = x + y). Before using a variable, you first need to declare it. You have to use the keyword var to declare a variable like this:

var name;

You can assign a value to the variable either while declaring the variable or after declaring the variable.

var name = "John";

OR

var name;

name = "John";

Naming Variables

Though you can name the variables as you like, it is a good programming practice to give descriptive and meaningful names to the variables. Moreover, variable names should start with a letter and they are case sensitive. Hence the variables studentname and studentName are different because the letter n in name is different (n and N).

Try this yourself:


<html>
<head>
<title>Variables!!!</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
var one = 22;
var two = 3;
var add = one + two;
var minus = one - two;
var multiply = one * two;
var divide = one/two;
	document.write("First No: = " + one + "<br />Second No: = " + two + " <br />");
	document.write(one + " + " + two + " = " + add + "<br/>");
	document.write(one + " - " + two + " = " + minus + "<br/>");
	document.write(one + " * " + two + " = " + multiply + "<br/>");
	document.write(one + " / " + two + " = " + divide + "<br/>");
</script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
