# Python Assignment Operators

The Python Assignment Operators are handy for assigning the values to the declared variables. Equals (=) is the most commonly used assignment operator in Python. For example:

`i = 10`

The list of available assignment operators in Python language.

## Python Assignment Operators Example

For this example, we are using four variables: a, Total, x, and y; their values are 7, 21, 9, and 65. Next, we use them to show the working functionality of all the Python Assignment Operators.

```a = 7
Total = 21

Total += a # Using +=
print("The Value of the Total after using += is: ", Total)
Total -= a # Using -=
print("The Value of the Total after using -= is: ", Total)
Total *= a # Using *=
print("The Value of the Total after using *= is: ", Total)
Total //= a # Using //=
print("The Value of the Total after using //= is: ", Total)
Total **= a # Using **=
print("The Value of the Total after using **= is: ", Total)
Total /= a # Using /=
print("The Value of the Total after using /= is: ", Total)
Total %= a # Using %=
print("The Value of the Total after using %= is: ", Total)

x = 9
y = 65
x &= y # Using &=
print("The Value of the x after using &= is: ", x)
x |= 9 # Using |=
print("The Value of the x after using |= is: ", x)
x ^= y # Using ^=
print("The Value of the x after using ^= is: ", x)```

In this example program, We declared 2 integer values, a Total, and we assigned values 7 and 21, respectively.

The print statements will display the output of the Total after using the Python Assignment Operators on a and Total. Let us see the functionalities of all of them.

First functionality,

``` Total += a # Using +=
print("The Value of the Total after using += is: ", Total)```

Total += a means

Total = Total + a ⇒ 21 + 7 = 28

So, the output of the above-mentioned Python print statement will be 28

The functionality of the Second Python assignment operator is,

``` Total -= a # Using -=
print("The Value of the Total after using -= is: ", Total)```

Total -= a means

Total = Total – a ⇒ 28 – 7 = 21

So, the output will be 21

Third functionality,

``` Total *= a # Using *=
print("The Value of the Total after using *= is: ", Total)```

Total *= a means

Total = Total * a ⇒ 21 * 7 = 147

So, the output will be 147

Fourth assignment operator in Python functionality,

``` Total //= a # Using //=
print("The Value of the Total after using //= is: ", Total)```

Total //= a means

Total = Total // a ⇒ 147 // 7 = 21

So, the output of the above-mentioned print statement will be 21

Fifth functionality,

``` Total **= a # Using **=
print("The Value of the Total after using **= is: ", Total)```

Total **= a means

Total = Total ** a ⇒ 21*21*21 *21*21*21*21 = 1,801,088,541

So, the output of the above-mentioned print statement will be 1,801,088,541

The Sixth assignment operator functionality,

```Total /= a # Using /=
>>> print("The Value of the Total after using /= is: ", Total)```

Total /= a means

Total= Total/ a ⇒ 1,801,088,541 / 7 = 257,298,363

So, the output of Total /= a will be 257,298,363

The functionality of a Seventh assignment operator in Python is

``` Total %= a # Using %=
print("The Value of the Total after using %= is: ", Total)```

Total %= a means

Total = Total % a ⇒257,298,363 % 7 = 0 (because Remainder of 257,298,363 /7 is = 0)

In the next line, We declared 2 integer values, x and y, and assigned 9 and 65, respectively.

``` x = 9
y = 65```

Eighth assignment operator functionality in Python,

``` x &= y # Using &=
print("The Value of the x after using &=  is: ", x)```

x &= y means

x = x&y ⇒ 9 & 65

⇒ 00001001 & 01000001 = 00000001 ⇒ 1

So, the output of x &= y is 1. Please refer Bitwise

Ninth one’s functionality,

``` x |= 9 # Using |=
print("The Value of the x after using |=  is: ", x)```

x |= 9 means x | 9 ⇒ 1 | 9

⇒ 00000001 | 00001001 = 00001001 ⇒ 9

So, the output will be 9

The functionality of a Tenth assignment operator in Python,

```x ^= y # Using ^=
>>> print("The Value of the x after using ^= is: ", x)```

x ^= y means

x = x ^ y ⇒ 9 ^65

⇒ 00001001 ^ 01000001 = 01001000 ⇒ 72

So, the output will be 72.
