basic datatypes

  • Every Variables in Python has a Datatype. In Python you do not need to declare any datatypes, you just write the variable and its value.
  • Python automatically decide the types based on our value.
  • Datatypes are created when you assign the value of variables.

Basic types:

                          1. Numeric

                          2. String

                          3. Boolean


There are 3 types of Numeric.

  • Integers
  • Floating-point Numbers
  • Complex Numbers

1. Integers:

When you declare numbers, it comes into the Integer datatypes.


2. Floating-point Numbers:

  • Floating number is the decimal point numbers.
  • Floating point number is up to 15 decimal places.
  • E.g.   2 is integer, 2.5 is floating point number.



3. Complex Number:

  • It is used when you have complex problem
  • Its denoted by x + yj, where x and y are the real numbers and j is the imaginary unit.



2 . Python String:

  • String is the collection of characters.
  • We can use single quotes( ‘ ) or double quotes( “ ) for declaring string.
  • We can use triple quotes ( ‘ ‘ ‘ ) or ( “ “ “ ) for creating Multi-line strings.



3. Python Boolean:

  • It is used when we have binary value. It means either 0 or 1 and you can say Yes/No.
  • Your answer is in between true and false or 0 and 1.
