I think the answer is "yes".

But I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're asking. But here's two examples of different kinds of assignments:

count = nums    # this copies the value from "nums" into the variable "count"
total += sale   # this adds the value in "sale" to the value already in the variable "total"

Does that cover your question?
