Python 2B - Inputting Numbers

Inputting Numbers in Python

To enter whole numbers then you must use the int command.


 int stands for integer (a whole number) and is typed before input – don’t forget the double brackets at the end.


Using float instead of int allows a decimal number to be entered instead. 


Again, don’t forget the double brackets at the end.
