No matter what you want to make in C#, you’ll need numbers!

Art: what are the dimensions of your canvas?
Games: how fast can your player move?
Business: how much does your product cost?

In this lesson, we’ll look at a few of the most commonly used numerical data types in C#. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to manipulate numerical data and write programs that perform calculations using arithmetic operators and built-in methods.


Take a look at the C# program in the code editor window. What do you think it will do? Run the code and see if you’re correct.
