Primary pupil or not?
BOB3 should now tell you if you’re a primary school pupil or not!
Tell him your year of birth and BOB3 will decide!
If you’re a primary school pupil, his eyes will be orange, otherwise they’ll be blue!
For our programme we need a variable,
birthyear. This variable is used to store your year of birth and access it later on.
To declare a new variable, i.e. to create it, we need to define the type and name, like we do in line 12:
The variable is an integer, also
int. You use this type for a number without a decimal point, like 3 or 100 or 2010 etc.
We’ve chosen the name
birthyear because it’s what we want to store!
In line 13 our new variable is initialised, which means it has been given a value for the first time:
birthyear = 2008;
The compiler now sees
birthyear as being equal to
From this point, we can use our variable in the trueth detecor (lines 16 - 22)!
