05 – C++ : Variables


CplusplusIn C++, each variable has a specific type wherein it determines the layout of the variable’s memory and the size. Not just that, it also determines the range of values stored within that memory.


Variable can be consist of characters such as digits, letters, and even an underscore. It either begins with a letter or a digit. And because C++ is case-sensitive, the use of lowercase and uppercase are very distinct.


Below are the basic types of variable in C++:

int set numbers only
float determine numbers with the decimal point
double determine numbers with the decimal point
