To work with arrays, you need to learn two new terms: elements and indexes. Elements are the values that are stored in the array. Each element in the array is referenced by an index that differentiates the element from any other unique element in the array. The index value can be a number or a string, but it must be unique. You can think of an array like a spreadsheet or a database that has only two columns. The first column uniquely identifies the row in the spreadsheet, while the second column contains a stored value.
