input() function reads any input as a string by default. Therefore you need to manually convert it to the actual data type you'd like to use. Here is how to read input as an integer:
number = int(input("Enter a number:")) print(number)
Pretty simple, right? All we did is to wrap the usual
input() function in the
int() constructor. Running this command will prompt us with the message "Enter a number:". After the user inputs a number,
input() will read it as a string, and the
int() will convert that string to a base-10 integer. In the end, we'll have the integer value of the input stored in the
>>> number = int(input("Enter a number:")) Enter a number:6 >>> print(number) 6
Alternatively, you can also read different base numbers by passing one additional argument into the
number = int(input("Enter a number:"), 2)
This will read a base-2 value from the input, convert it to the base-10 number and assign that value to the
Additionally, you can read float numbers in the same manner as previously shown:
number = float(input("Enter a number:"))
