Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):

b = a + 2

a = b * 4

b = a / 3.14

a = b - 8

(PS: In some coding systems there would be a semicolon; at the end of each of these, e.g. a = b - 8; for the last one.)

If there is anything wrong with them, please let me know and I'll correct the error.
