Variables can be given a value using an assignment statement:
age=12; answer='Y'; cost=5.25;
The variable that is getting a value is always on the left.
The statement below will give both num1 and num1 a value of 5.
You can also get values from the form or from controls:
string title = this.Text;
bool ready = chkReady.Checked; Color myColor = this.BackColor;
