Variables in Python

You can consider a variable to be a temporary storage space where you can keep changing values. Let’s take this example to understand variables:

So, let’s say, we have this cart and initially we store an apple in it.


After a while, we take out this apple and replace it with a banana.



Again, after some time, we replace this banana with a mango.



So, here this cart acts like a variable, where the values stored in it keep on changing.

Now, that we have understood what a variable is, let’s go ahead and see how can we assign values to a variable in python.

Assigning values to a variable:

To assign values to a variable in Python, we will use the assignment (=) operator.



Here, initially, we have stored a numeric value -> 10 in the variable ‘a’.  After a while, we have stored a string value -> “sparta” in the same variable. And then, we have stored the logical value True.

Now, let’s implement the same thing in Jupyter Notebook and look at the result:

Assigning a value 10 to a:

Allocating “sparta” to a:

Assigning True to a:

Going ahead in this Python tutorial, we will learn about data types in Python.
