How to tween a regular number variable with AS3

Hey all. I have several objects referencing one value in a number, and I need to tween this number but I cant figure out how. I’ll use whatever, the built in tweens or tweener or anything. I cant figure out how to reference the value of the variable, since its not a display object and you cant just say myDisObj.y or something like that. I would greatly appreciate any help. If theres no way to do this i’ll just have all of the display objects reference from one’s property. Thanks!
