To edit the value of a variable, you use the mathematical operators +, -, /, and *. Let's create the variable jimmy and set it to nine :

int jimmy = 9;

If we want jimmy to to set to 10 we can do the following:

jimmy = jimmy + 1;

Remember this syntax: [the varaible that you want to change] = [the number or existing varaible] ;

Because typing variable = variable + x is repetitive and annoying, the creator (all hail Bjarne Stroustrup) made
