C Sharp provides us with many built in data types for…storing information in our program as it executes on the computer.…However, in order to be able to work with this data,…we have to be able to store it in the computer's memory.…All data types are stored in the memory of the computer as the program is executing.…And in order to be able to get access to that information, to the data…that's stored in that memory, we create…something called either a variable or a constant.…These are named memory locations for the data that we store.…
So if we take a look at the different data…types that C Sharp makes available, such as the int…for storing integer values, or the char for storing character…values, string for storing a string of character values, et cetera.…All of this information has to be stored in our program…somewhere and, again, the program will store it in the computer's memory.…But how do we gain access to that without…knowing the physical memory address of where it's actually stored?…We do so by creating the variables and the constants to store that information.…
