## 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

- Gather the two numbers that will compose the sum of owls.
- Add the two numbers together to compute the sum.
- 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.
