3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
Set b= 2 +a
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a set a= b*4
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b set b= 3.14/b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stored the result in a set a= b-8

a. set result= x+y= 4+8
b. set result=z*2= 2*2
c. set result= y/x= 8/4 set result= y-z= 8-2
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers. Floating-point variable cost
6. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable total so it can hold integers. Initialize the variable with the value 0.
