Finally, the type() function returns the type of the data it receives as an argument. If you ask Python to do the following:

print type(42) print type(4.2) print type('spam')

Python will output:

<type 'int'> <type 'float'> <type 'str'>



Have Python print out the type of an int, a float, and a str string in the editor. You can pick any values on which to call type(), so long as they produce one of each.
