Numbers in Python are of four types - integers, long integers, floating point and complex numbers.

Examples of integers are

`2`

which are just whole numbers.Long integers are just bigger whole numbers.

Examples of floating point numbers (or

*floats*for short) are`3.23`

and`52.3E-4`

. The`E`

notation indicates powers of 10. In this case,`52.3E-4`

means`52.3 * 10`

.^{-4}Examples of complex numbers are

`(-5+4j)`

and`(2.3 - 4.6j)`
