JavaScript on an HTML page

You have already learned how to print something using JavaScript on console. How about we do it on an HTML page? Before doing this, let's introduce an HTML tag, <script></script>. Our JavaScript code will be between these tags.

As there are lots of scripting languages, we need to define what kind of language we are using between these tags. Therefore, we type the following:

<script type = "text/javascript">
  // Our JavaScript Codes will be here. 

Let's see an example. In the previous chapter, you learned how to do basic operations using JavaScript on console. Now, we are going to perform a few operations between the <script></script> tags in an HTML page. Look at the following code carefully:

      JavaScript Example
    <script type="text/javascript">
      var x = 34;
      var y = 93;
      var sum = x+y;
