An array is a fixed-length data structure which can hold more than one value of the same data type.
All elements of an array are stored contiguously in memory.
Placing  after the data type or after the variable name in a variable declaration.
The following are more examples of array declarations:
// salary can hold multiple float values float salary; // name can hold multiple references to String objects String name; // emp can hold multiple references to Employee objects Employee emp;
