Our third pillar of object oriented programming is known as polymorphism.…The term polymorphism essentially means many states or many forms…and to get an idea of how that functions within…our programming environment for the applications that we create, we'll…continue to look at the Animal class and the Dog class.…So, in this example, we have our Animal class…that we have been working on, that has specific attributes.…So, we have some member variables.…And we also have some functionality built into it.…Such as properties that allow us to encapsulate our age and our color.…
And then a couple of methods, such as Move and makeNoise.…Within our Dog class, we currently don't have…any implementation of methods or other properties in here.…But we are inheriting from the Animal class through this context.…And that means that the Dog class basically…takes on all properties of that Animal class.…But polymorphism allows us to make changes to our subclasses, which…allow them to provide additional…functionality or additional number of variables.…
