Declare a variable

See Definition of a Variable

To declare a variable in Java use:

type nameOfVariable;


type nameOfVariable = expression;

Common Errors:

You can't create two variables with the same name in the same scope (like in the same method).


boolean returnFlag;
boolean success = false;

int count = 0;
int numTimes;

double sum = 0;
double average;
