We use two primary types of variables:
- Numeric variables which store numbers. Examples are a, b, c, or age, average, total.
- String variables which store other types of data such and names or dates. Examples are A$, B$, or FirstName$, Address$
Variables can only hold one value at a time unless they are defined as an array.
- An example of a numeric array that can hold 10 values is price(3) which would be the third element in the array.
- An example of a string array that could hole 4 values is name$(2) which would be the second element in the array.
