If you have never use any programming Algebra then variables concept might a new concept for you. Detailed explanation of variables in this tutorial.
The PHP variables means the storing the values like text string “a4avariables”, or integers values “1,2,3”. PHP Variables named “Containers” that store a value. A variable can reuse again and again in your code.
PHP defined with the following form.

$variable_name = Value;

Rules of Variables

  1. Variable names are case-sensitive(y and Y are two different variables).
  2. Don’t forget that dollar sign at the beginning.
  3. PHP variables must start with a alpha-numeric letter or underscore (A-Z,0-9,_).
  4. Variables name should not contain spaces.
  5. Variable name more than one word should be separated with underscores($aone_php).
  6. More then one word also distinguished with capitalization like ($aonePhp).

PHP Code

$myVariable = "PHP is Very Easy For all!";
echo $myVariable;
