`x = x + 1`

Above should increment `x`

by 1, but is there a shortcut for this?

yes and this is how it is written

`x += 1 # to add 1 to the current and store it in x`

or

`x -= 1 # to subtract 1 from the current and store it in x`

or

`x *= 1 # to multiply the current value of x by 1 ( I know silly)`

or

`x /=1 # to divide the current value of x by 1 (Yeah Yeah Yeah its silly)`
