Another useful data type is the string. A string can contain letters, numbers, and symbols.

name = "Ryan" age = "19" food = "cheese"
  1. In the above example, we create a variable name and set it to the string value "Ryan".
  2. We also set age to "19" and food to "cheese".

Strings need to be within quotes.
