Inserting the value of a current variable (symbol) in a text cell?

Assuming a given symbol ("x", say) has previously been given a numerical
value (x=<x-value>, say), is there a simple way to have that numerical
value appear in the text in a text cell?  

E.g., have the text in a cell read, "Using our previous assumption that
x = <x-value>, we can show that . . . "
