Hello, new user here

From everything I have read, variables are stored until cleared. but it seems that I can't get them to be stored at all

so if I enter = x = 5
and then go to the next cell and enter
= x*x

I would expect the answer to be 25. Instead the answer is x^2. It seems as if every new cell clears the information from the previous cells.

Is there an option I am missing somewhere?

Thanks in advance.
