## Number Data Type in python

## Python Numbers

Number data types store numeric values. Number objects are created when you assign a value to them.

For example −

var1 = var2 = 10

You can also delete the reference to a number object by using the del statement. The syntax of the del statement is −

del var1[,var2[,var3[….,varN]]]]

You can delete a single object or multiple objects by using the del statement. For example −

del vardel var_a, var_b

Python supports four different numerical types −

- int (signed integers)
- long (long integers, they can also be represented in octal and hexadecimal)
- float (floating point real values)
- complex (complex numbers)

### Examples

Here are some examples of numbers −

Int |
Long |
float |
Complex |

10 | 51924361L | 0.0 | 3.14j |

100 | -0x19323L | 15.20 | 45.j |

-786 | 0122L | -21.9 | 9.322e-36j |

080 | 0xDEFABCECBDAECBFBAEl | 32.3+e18 | .876j |

-0490 | 535633629843L | -90. | -.6545+0J |

-0x260 | -052318172735L | -32.54e100 | 3e+26J |

0x69 | -4721885298529L | 70.2-E12 | 4.53e-7j |

- Python allows you to use a lowercase l with long, but it is recommended that you use only an uppercase L to avoid confusion with the number 1. Python displays long integers with an uppercase L.
- A complex number consists of an ordered pair of real floating-point numbers denoted by x + yj, where x and y are the real numbers and j is the imaginary unit.
