  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2021

This article discusses methods to assign values to variables. 

Attention reader! All those who say programming isn't for kids, just haven't met the right mentors yet. Join the  Demo Class for First Step to Coding Coursespecifically designed for students of class 8 to 12. 

The students will get to learn more about the world of programming in these free classes which will definitely help them in making a wise career choice in the future.

Method 1: Direct Initialisation Method 

C++




// C++ code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int main()
{
    // initialising variables directly
    int a = 5;
 
    // printing value of a
    cout << "The value of a is: " << a;
}

C




// C code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
 
#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
    // initialising variables directly
    int a = 5;
 
    // printing value of a
    printf("The value of a is: %d", a);
}

Java




// Java code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
 
        // initialising variables directly
        int a = 5;
 
        // printing value of a
        System.out.println("The value of a is: " + a);
    }
}

Python3




# Python 3 code to demonstrate variable assignment
# upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
 
# initialising variable directly
a = 5
 
# printing value of a
print ("The value of a is: " + str(a))

C#




// C# code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
using System;
  
class GFG{
     
public static void Main(String []args)
{
     
    // Initialising variables directly
    int a = 5;
 
    // Printing value of a
    Console.Write("The value of a is: " + a);
}
}
  
// This code is contributed by shivanisinghss2110

Javascript




<script>
 
// JavaScript code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Direct Initialisation Method
        // initialising variables directly
        var a = 5;
 
        // printing value of a
        document.write("The value of a is: " + a);
 
 
</script>
// this code is contributed by shivanisinghss2110
Output: 
The value of a is: 5

 

Method 2: Using Conditional Operator (?:)

Below is the syntax in other popular languages.

C++




// C++ code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int main()
{
    // initialising variables using Conditional Operator
    int a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0;
 
    // printing value of a
    cout << "The value of a is: " << a;
}

C




// C code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
    // initialising variables using Conditional Operator
    int a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0;
 
    // printing value of a
    printf("The value of a is: %d", a);
}

Java




// Java code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
 
        // initialising variables using Conditional Operator
        int a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0;
 
        // printing value of a
        System.out.println("The value of a is: " + a);
    }
}

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate variable assignment
# upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
# Initialising variables using Conditional Operator
a = 1 if 20 > 10 else 0
 
# Printing value of a
print("The value of a is: " , str(a))
 
# This code is contributed by shivanisinghss2110

C#




// C# code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
using System;
 
class GFG {
    public static void Main(String []args)
    {
 
        // initialising variables using Conditional Operator
        int a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0;
 
        // printing value of a
        Console.Write("The value of a is: " + a);
    }
}
// this code is contributed by shivanisinghss2110

Javascript




<script>
 
// JavaScript code to demonstrate variable assignment
// upon condition using Conditional Operator
 
        // initialising variables using Conditional Operator
        var a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0;
 
        // printing value of a
        document.write("The value of a is: " + a);
 
// This code is contributed by shivanisinghss2110
 
</script>
Output: 
The value of a is: 1

 

One liner if-else instead of Conditional Operator (?:) in Python

Python3




# Python 3 code to demonstrate variable assignment
# upon condition using One liner if-else
 
# initialising variable using Conditional Operator
# a = 20 > 10 ? 1 : 0 is not possible in Python
# Instead there is one liner if-else
a = 1 if 20 > 10 else 0
 
# printing value of a
print ("The value of a is: " + str(a))
Output: 
The value of a is: 1
