Numbers

In the previous chapters, you operated with numbers. There are many variants of number classifications in math (negative/positive, rational/irrational, etc.). How does Python distinguish between numbers? There are three numerical types in Python:

`float`

- represents a floating-point number`int`

- represents an integer/whole number`complex`

- represents a complex number

We won’t focus too much on complex numbers, since this is a branch of Further Mathematics. To get the type of a certain value/variable, use the `type()`

function. For example, let's output the types of the numbers `5`

and `10.5`

.
