Variables: Variables are identifiers that store pieces of data. You can assign a variable a value from any data type, such as a string, number, or boolean.
Operators: Operators are used to perform operations on data types. They are used to assign, compare, and modify data.
Let us start by examining what variables be. Aye, they are like containers, whereby ye can store information. Variables assign a name to th’ data and allow a coder to use and manipulate th’ information much easier than if it were not organized. Variables may contain any number of data types, such as a string, number, float, or boolean value, among many more. When coding, it be essential to adhere to a specific Standard Nomenclature wherevariables can be understood and accepted by any who use them.
In contrast to Variables, Loops represent a sequence of statements that be repeated while a condition is true or until a set result be obtained. Loops are indispensable in large scale programming as they enable coders to execute a set of instructions with ease over a large data set. Without them, a coder must write a sequence, oft-times hundreds of lines, manually if he wishes to repeat such instructions. Such activities can be tedious but loops facilitate within mere minutes.
- Variables: contain data types such as strings, numbers, etc.
- Loops: repeat a set of instructions over a large data set
- Strings: characters put together to be used for visual elements, equations, calculations, etc.
