# Solution: The answer to life, the Universe and everything

Here is a possible solution to the task.

## Code

```
my $answer = 42;
say $answer;
```

🦋 You can find the source code in the file answer.raku.

## Output

Run the program and see what it prints:

```
$ raku exercises/scalar-variables/answer.raku
42
```

## Comments

One of the requirements of this problem was to use variables. As `42`

is a single value, it is a good choice to use a scalar variable to store it.
