VALUE: A value assigned to a constant when it is declared.

   -- other declarations  
   radius number(5,2);      
   ci number(7, 2);  
   area number (10, 2);  
   area := PI * radius * radius; 
   ci := 2 * PI * radius;  
   -- output  
   DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Area of circle: ' || area);  
   DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Circumference : ' || ci);
