Constant in C++


Constant can be referred to as an entity that doesn't change throughout the program.

There are different types of constant available in C++ i.e. integer constant (whole number), floating-point constant (number with decimal values), a character constant.


Integer Constant = 37, 45

Floating Point Constant = 46.7, 57.8

Character Constant = This type of constant is written in single quotes i.e. 'a', 'b'

String Constant = This type of constant is written in double-quotes i.e. "Anita", "Anmol"

In C++, There are two simpler techniques can be used to define constants.

  1. Using #definepreprocessor
  2. Using the const keyword
  3. #definepreprocessor

Syntax: #define identifier value


#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
#define LENGTH 4
#define WIDTH 8
#define NEWLINE '\n'
int main() {
int area;
area = LENGTH * WIDTH;
cout << area;
cout << NEWLINE;
return 0;



2) Using the const keyword

The const prefix can be used to declare constants.


const type variable = value;
const int size = 4;
