Convert Types | Bring All the Topics Together
Data Types in Python

## Convert Types

At times, Python may automatically assign a data type to a variable, which might not align with our intended choice. Hence, it is advantageous to possess the capability to exert control over the data type selection.

For instance, we can turn a number into a string, change the type of numerical data, or even use whichever number as a boolean data type. In this chapter, we are going to take care of converting numerical data types.

First and foremost, take a look at the syntax of converting a number to the integer data type:

Note

It has a simple syntax, `int(number)`, but if we want to convert a string to an integer, this string should contain integer numbers in quotes, like `int("8990")`, not `int("899.0")`.

1. Convert `variable1` to an integer.
2. Convert `variable2` to an integer.
3. Convert `variable3` to an integer.

I want to admit that you are going to get an attractive result: 3 perfect numbers. I'll explain what perfect numbers are at the end of chapter.🤔

Note

A perfect number is an integer that is the sum of its positive proper divisors: 6 = 1+2+3. Our courses don't just help develop in programming.😄

Everything was clear?
