How to Assign the Total Number of Owls from the Sum of Two Numbers

Introduction

This tutorial is intended to help developers learn how to assign a total number of owls from the sum of two numbers. It provides a step-by-step solution to the problem and a FAQ section at the end.

Step-by-Step Solution

1. Gather the two numbers that will compose the sum of owls.
2. Add the two numbers together to compute the sum.
3. Assign the result of the sum to a variable, let’s say `numOwls`, that will contain the total number of owls.

Examples

Example 1

``````// assigning the total number of owls from the sum of two numbers
// variable declarations
let num1 = 2;
let num2 = 5;
let numOwls;

// variable assignments
numOwls = num1 + num2; // numOwls is now equal to 7
``````

Example 2

``````// assigning the total number of owls from the sum of two numbers
// variable declarations
let num1 = 10;
let num2 = 6;
let numOwls;

// variable assignments
numOwls = num1 + num2; // numOwls is now equal to 16
``````

FAQ

Q1: Do I need to use a variable to store the sum?

A: Yes. You need to assign the sum to a variable (in this case `numOwls`) in order to store the total number of owls.

Q2: Can I use other data types besides numbers to calculate the sum?

A: No. The two numbers need to be numeric values in order to calculate the sum.
