## Reading a Text

To read a text (string) from the console, again, we have to declare a new variable and use the standart command for reading information from the console:

var str = Console.ReadLine();


Let us pay attention to the fact that the reading of text is not declared in any way as a type "string" (text). The reason is because by default the Console.ReadLine(…) method returns a text result. Additionally, you can parse the text to an integer by int.Parse(…) or a real number by double.Parse(…). If this is not done, for the program every number will be just text, and we cannot do arithmetic operations with it.
