The purpose of Python's assignment statement is to associate names with values in your program. It is the only statement that does not start with a keyword. An assignment statement is a line containing at least one single equal sign (=) that is not inside parentheses.
As an example x = 10 means : associate variable x with the value 10, or my_name = "Alice" means : associate variable my_name with value 'Alice'.
