*Assignment* operators

Used for assignment from right to left.

### Description

Assignment operators allow us to assigns a value to a left operand based on the value of a right operand.

### Operators

Assignment Operator | Description | Example | Result |
---|---|---|---|

`=` | Equality | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b = a;` |
b = 5 |

`+=` | Shorthand Addition | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b += a;` |
b = 15 |

`-=` | Shorthand Subtraction | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b -= a;` |
b = 5 |

`*=` | Shorthand Multiplication | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b *= a;` |
b = 50 |

`/=` | Shorthand Division | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b /= a;` |
b = 2 |

`&=` | Shorthand Bitwise AND | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b &= a;` |
b = 0 |

`|=` | Shorthand Bitwise OR | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b |= a;` |
b = 15 |

`^=` | Shorthand Bitwise XOR | `var a = 5, b = 10;` `b ^= a;` |
b = 15 |

`<<=` | Shorthand Left Shift | `var a = 111111, b = 1010;` `b <<= a;` |
b = 129280 |

`>>=` | Shorthand Sign-Propagating Right Shift | `var a = 111111, b = 1010;` `b >>= a;` |
b = 7 |

`>>>=` | Shorthand Zero-Fill Right Shift | `var a = 111111, b = 1010;` `b >>>= a;` |
b = 7 |
