Variables in JavaScript:

Variables are nothing but a container to store data. Variables hold the data for some operation and we can use it later in our programming.

To declare a variable you must use “var” keyword before that variable name.

Here is a simple example to create variables and doing the addition of those variables


In above example variable “a” hold value “5”. Variables are also used to hold expression like above example variable “z” is holding the “a
+b” addition of two variables.

Many Variables in One Line:

You can declare variables in a single line means one statement with many variable declarations and also you can pass string value to a variable. String should be always declared in “ ” (double quotes). You can understand it by following variable declaration:


var a=5, b=6, z;

var name=”Angle” phone=9823924;


One thing also you should know that “var” keyword is only use for declaring variable. After declaring variable you can use them by their name means you don’t have to always write “var” keyword before variable .


In following example we are using both integer and string type declaration
