A

An Assignment Statement is associates a reference of a data object resulted from an expression to a variable or to an item in a list or dictionary.

Assignment statement has the following syntax:

variable = expression

After the data object is assigned to a variable, the data object can referenced using the variable name.

For example, the following assignment statement defines variable "x" to be a reference to the "float" object created from the 3.14159 literal.

>>> x = 3.14159
>>> x
3.14159

The following assignment statement defines variable "y" to be a reference to the "float" object created from the expression 3.14159.

>>> y = 3.14159 * 2
>>> y
6.28318
