A data type or simply type is a classification identifying one of various types of data, such as real-valued, integer or Boolean, that determines the possible values for that type.
A data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently
Python has five standard data types − Numbers String List Tuple Dictionary
Here are naming conventions for Python identifiers −
Class names start with an uppercase letter. All other identifiers start with a lowercase letter.
Starting an identifier with a single leading underscore indicates that the identifier is private.
Starting an identifier with two leading underscores indicates a strongly private identifier.
If the identifier also ends with two trailing underscores, the identifier is a language-defined special name.
Python supports four different numerical types − int (signed integers) long (long integers, they can also be represented in octal and hexadecimal) float (floating point real values) complex (complex numbers)
floats, intfall under numbers. @Warenga
Booleansare data types too. The post just didn't talk about it. I would recommend you look at https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html?highlight=booleans
