Determine variable type in Python
To get the type of a variable in python you can use the built in type() method.
In the following code we are printing the value the data type of variable x.
x=1 print(type(x)) y=type(x) if y==int: print("variable is integer") elif y==str: print("variable is string") elif y==float: print("variable is float")
If you execute the code above then the following will be printed:
variable is integer
try changing the value of x to different types such as string,float.To set float value you can assign x as:
Similarly to assign string to x:
