Data types in Python

Must read


Data type specifies the type of data present inside a variable.
• Every value has a data type
• In python it is not required to specify the data type explicitly.
• Based on the value, the type will be assigned automatically.
• Python is dynamically typed language.


Python contains the following data types

• None
• Numeric
• List
• Tuple
• Set
• String
• Range
• Dictionary/ mapping
NONE:
• If a variable is not assigned with any value is called None.
Numeric
• Numeric type of data is classified into four types

  1. Int
  2. Float
  3. Complex
  4. Bool
    Integer
    Integer includes the values that are integers.
    Integer type variables stores the values that are in integer format.
    • Example:
    num= 4
    print(num)
    output :4
    Float:
    • Float includes decimal numbers.
    Example
    • num= 5.5
    print(num)
    output:
    5.5
    Complex:

    • It includes real and imaginary values.
    • Example:>>num=7+8j
    num= ‘7+8j’
    print(num)
    output:
    7+8j
    Note: In all the above data types we are not specifying the data type before the variable. This means that in python thee is no need to type the data type explicitly. It considers the type of the data based in the given input value
