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
