Extending Interfaces

In TypeScript, you can extend an interface by creating a new interface that inherits from the original interface using the “extends” keyword. The new interface can include additional properties, methods, or redefine the members of the original interface.

interface Shape {
  width: number;
  height: number;

interface Square extends Shape {
  sideLength: number;

let square: Square = {
  width: 10,
  height: 10,
  sideLength: 10,

In this example, the Square interface extends the Shape interface and adds an additional property sideLength. A variable of type Square must have all the properties defined in both Shape and Square interfaces.
