# Data Types In Python

Data Type is basically the type of data a variable holds. For example if the variable store a number then the variable data type will be a integer.

Python has many built-in data types, Following is the list of all data types in python:

Now let’s see each data type one by one.

## 1. Integer

``````
age = 25

print(age)
``````

Integer type represents whole numbers.

## 2. Float

``````
size = 2.5

print(size)
``````

Float type represents decimal or floating-point numbers

## 3. String

``````
name = "John Doe"

print(name)
``````

String type represents sequences of characters enclosed in single or double quotes

## 4. Boolean

``````
is_teen = False

print(is_teen)
``````

Boolean type represents either True or False.

## 5. List

``````
grades = [90, 85, 92, 88]

``````

A list is an ordered collection that can contain elements of different data types.

## 6. Tuple

``````
coordinates = (3, 5)

print(coordinates)
``````

Similar to a list but immutable (cannot be modified after creation).

## 7. Dictionary

``````
person = {"name": "Alice", "age": 28, "is_student": False}

print(person)
``````

Dictionary is an unordered collection of key-value pairs.

## 8. Set

``````
unique_numbers = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

print(unique_numbers)
``````

Unordered collection of unique elements.

## 9. None

``````
no_value = None

print(no_value)
``````

Represents the absence of a value or a null value.

## Checking Data Type Of A Variable

``````
score = 90
name = "Jason"
is_injured = False

print(type(score))
print(type(name))
print(type(is_injured))
``````

In python we can check the data type of a variable using the type() function, In the function you need to pass the variable you want to check and the pass the type() function in print() function to print the data type.

So this was everything you needed to know about variable data types in python.
