Description Edit

Variables are used in almost every programming language, and are a method for storing data. In JavaScript and Khan Academy's Processing JavaScript environment, a variable is defined with the var keyword, followed by the name of the variable (Note: Variables must not start with numbers), then the coder may close the statement or define the variable then close the statement. Statements are closed with a semicolon in many coding languages, JavaScript and Processing JavaScript included.
