Data types represent a type of value. Python has five standard data types:
- Numeric: We can use different numeric data types like integer, float, and complex.
- String: A string is a sequence of characters.
- List: As the name implies, this is a list of items.
- Tuple: Similar to a list but it’s read-only.
- Dictionary: a Dictionary is a key-value pair you can use to store data.
We are going to cover the data types with examples in the next lessons.
