© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 1 Assignment Statement An assignment statement gives a value to a variable. Assignment can take several forms: x = 5; a literal (5) is assigned to x x = y + 2; the value of an expression (y + 2) is assigned to x x = z; the value of another variable ( z ) is assigned to x

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 4 Abstract Data Types A variable declared with a class is called an object. For example, the object spot is type Circle: Circle spot = new Circle(4);spot getRadius() area()

For example, multiplication is performed first, then division, and finally addition: 5 + 6 * 4 / 2 = 17

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 10 Changing the Order of Operations The order in which operators are evaluated can be changed by using parentheses. For example, addition is performed first, then multiplication, and finally division: (5 + 6) * 4 / 2 = 22

Type casting is used to: 1.make the operand types in an expression match. For example, wholeNum = (int)y * 2 2.truncate the decimal portion of a double. For example, wholeNum = (int)z 3.change the way in which a division ( / ) operation will be performed. For example, realDivision = (double)a / (double)b

Logic errors, also called semantic errors, occur in statements that are syntactically correct, but produce undesired or unexpected results. Run-time errors, also called exceptions, halt program execution at the statement that cannot be executed. One type of exception is called DividByZeroExecption.
