How to assign values to variables in Python and other languages
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 04 Mar, 2021

This article discusses methods to assign values to variables. 

Method 1: Direct Initialisation Method 

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
 
#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
    // initialising variables directly
    int a = 5;
 
    // printing value of a
    printf("The value of a is: %d", a);
}


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;
}


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);
    }
}


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 <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);
}


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;
}


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);
    }
}


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
