What is Data Type?
It is an attribute that tells what kind of data that value or a variable can have it.
#Example: rollnumber = 12345 # rollnumber is integer name = "Anand" # name is string marks = 80.5 # marks is float
Standard Data Types
Python support 3 different numerical types :
3. Complex Number
i = 50 # Number without decimal point - Integer f = 3.14 # Number with decimal point - Float x = 2 + 3j # Number consists of both real and imaginary value - Complex Number print(i,f,x) Output: 50 3.14 (2+3j)
Identifying the Variable Types
type()- inbuilt function which is used to determine the type of the variable.
print(type(i)) print(type(f)) print(type(x)) Output: class 'int' class 'float' class 'complex'
