Hey there, … the difference I see there is just their data types , one is a string and the other an integer… or what differences did you have in mind?

Thanks so much Kyle. I’m just a beginner and just learning the basis. Can you send any link to me that can improve my knowledge in python. Cheers!

This is just a guess on my part, but perhaps you are asking about what happens when you enter a number after a Python program prompts you for input. For some guidance regarding that process, you can consult the official documentation on the built-in `input()`

function. See `input`

(* prompt*).

Note that the documentation states, in part:

The function then reads a line from input, converts it to a string …

Therefore, if you enter `7`

at the prompt, the `input()`

function would return the value `"7"`

, which is a string. In order to use it as a number for some mathematical computation, you would need to convert it for that purpose. Here is an example:

```
num = int(input("Enter an integer to be squared: "))
print(f"{num} squared is {num * num}.")
```

Here is some example input and output during a run of the program:

```
Enter an integer to be squared: 7
7 squared is 49.
```
