Lab Problem  "COPYVAR"
CLS 'copy one variable to another
X = 5
Y = 8
PRINT "X ="; X; " Y ="; Y
X = Y 'X becomes 8
Y = X 'Y is still 8
PRINT "X ="; X; " Y ="; Y
END
Start with the above program and save it as COPYVAR. Now exchange the values of the variables so X will equal 8 and Y will equal 5 without reassigning literal values. Hint: You will need to use a third temporary variable. Name it temp. Save again. Post your program after you have solved the problem.
