# Python Numbers - int, float and complex short note

1 min 20 sec read Basic Python basically supports three types of numbers which includes

• int
• float
• complex

## Integer

Integers can be represented using following syntax. You can also print which type of variable is defined in python code using type() function

`i = 5 print(type(i)) # Check the datatype of variable i print(i) #Print the value of i `

You can also apply various operations on integer numbers as shown in given example

`i = 5 print("Number is %d" % i) #print value of i print("Addition is %d" %(i + 1)) # Addition print("Addition is %d" %(i - 1)) # Subtraction print("Multiplication is %d" %(i * 2)) # Multiplication print("Exponential is %d" %(i ** 3)) # Exponential print("floating Division is %f" %(i / 2)) # Floating Division print("Integer Division is %d" %(i // 2)) # Integer Division i += 1 #Increment the value of i by 1 print(i) i -= 1 #Decrement the value of i by 1 print(i) i *= 1 #Multiply the value of i by 1 print(i) i **= 2 #i raise to power 2 which is 5 square print(i) i /= 4 #Floating division prints value in floating format print(i) i //= 2 #Integer divison prints value in integer format print(i) `

## Float

Float numbers can be represented using following syntax. You can also print which type of variable is defined in python code using type() function

`i = 5.0 print(type(i)) # Check the datatype of variable i print(i) `

`i = 5 print(float(i)) `

You can also apply various operations on float numbers as shown in given example

```print(" ") f = 11.7 print(type(f)) # Check the datatype of variable i print(f) # Print the value of the variable i print("Number is %f" % f) # printf() type syntax print("Number is %.3f" % f) # printf() style formatting print("Addition is %f" %(f + 1)) # Addition print("Substraction is %f" %(f - 1)) # Subtraction print("Multiplications is %f" %(f * 2)) # Multiplication print("Exponential is %f" %(f ** 3)) # Exponential print("Floating division is %f" %(f / 2)) # Floating Division print("Integer Divison is %f" %(f // 2)) # Integer Division f += 1 #Increment the value of f by 1 print(f) f -= 1 #Decrement the value of f by 1 print(f) f *= 1 #Multiply the value off by 1 print(f) f **= 2 #f raise to power 2 print(f) f /= 4 #Floating division prints value in floating format print(f) f //= 2 #Integer division prints value in Integer format print(f) ```

## Complex

Complex numbers are written with a "j" as the imaginary part:

`x = 7+8j y = 2j z = -3j print(type(x)) print(type(y)) print(z) `
