only a mixture of byte, short, or i n t values will always be an i n t . Tor example, assume that b and c in the following expression ATC short variables: b +c Although both b and c are short variables, the result of the expression b + c is an i n t . This means that when the result o f such an expression is stored in a variable, the variable must be an i n t or higher data type. For example, look at the following code: short firstNunber • 10, secondNuinber • 20, thirdNumber; 67 Chapter 2

describes the object. You have already seen classes used as containers for applications. A class can also be used to specify the attributes and methods that a particular type of object may have. Think of a class 2.9 The S t r i n g Cl«5 as a "blueprint" that objects may be created from. So a class is not an object, but a description of an object- When the program is running, it can use the class to create, in memory, as many objects as needed. lach object that is created from a class is called
