◕ How to increment a variable by a given amount in Java?

Let have an example first:
numBalls = numBalls + 1;

In the above assignment statement we add 1 to the variable numBalls and stored the result value again on the same variable numBalls.
As a result, the new value of the variable numBalls will increase by 1.
This is a very common practice in a program.

◕ By replacing the 1 with 5 we can increment the value of the variable numBalls by 5.
numBalls = numBalls + 5;

This will increase the value of numBalls by 5.

◕ Same as the addition we can use the subtraction, multiplication as shown bellow.

■ subtraction:
numBalls = numBalls - 1;

■ Multiplication:
numBalls = numBalls * 2;
