Numbers in Python

Python Number data types stores numeric values (Numeric – value should be constant and never change).
The numeric types are listed as below:
int
float
complex
These are created an immutable object, once the object is created and that never change and if the value is changed it leads to create a new object.
Obj1 = 2
Obj1 is an object assigned a value of 2, here 2 is constant and never change. If the value of number (obj1) data type is changed to other value a new object is allocated.
Obj2 = 3
Below are the examples for number data types:
x = 1
y = 3.14
z = 1+2j
If we want to know the data types of the above objects use command: type(object)
print (type(object))

>>> x=1
>>> print(type(x))
<class 'int'>
>>> y=3.14
>>> print(type(y))
<class 'float'>
>>> z=1+2j
>>> print(type(z))
<class 'complex'>

See the below code snippet

Int type:

Integer type is a number type which don’t have decimals in that number, i.e whole number. The number may be signed or unsigned integer (Negative or positive).


>>> num1=5
>>> print(type(num1))
<class 'int'>
>>> num2=898654234545
>>> print(type(num2))
<class 'int'>
>>> num3=-969
>>> print(type(num3))
<class 'int'>
