Data Types in Python

## Data Types in Python

# Integer Numbers

You might be accustomed to specifying numbers in ways such as:

`1,000,000`

(with commas);`1 000 000`

(with spaces).

However, Python will not understand this.😢

These formats are understandable for a person but not for a computer, so the right way is `1000000`

without commas or spaces.

Task

Here is the distance from the sun to the Earth in miles: `var1 = 91,400,000`

. And here is the distance from the Earth to the moon: `var2 = 238 855`

. You need to adjust these number formats to be compatible with Python.

- Rewrite the values of these two distances so they are recognizable by Python.
- Output these variables by including their names in
`print`

function calls.

Note

If you have a strong desire to use separators, Python understands the following syntax:

`var = 1_000_000`

.
