That depends on how you want the variable to be used in that file, and on the type of variable you want to write.  Generally, variables are stored in a "binary" format or in a "text" format in a file.  Text format files are more common because more applications tend to be able to read them.

In C++, the easiest way to write a variable to a file in text format is to use the iostream insertion operators, like this:

#include <iostream>

int main()
{
  double c = 5.0;
  fstream outfile("myfile.txt");
  outfile << c << endl;
  return(0);
}
