Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing, you are referring to step 4/10 “Data Types” where it says:
Number : Any number, including numbers with decimals:
String : Any grouping of characters on your keyboard (letters, numbers, spaces, symbols, etc.) >surrounded by single quotes:
' ... ' or double quotes
" ... " . Though we prefer single quotes. Some >people like to think of string as a fancy word for text.
correct? In the United States numbers with decimal parts are represented with a dot
I know that in other countries is common to use a comma
, instead. So a number like
23.42 is a valid number, with an integer part (23) and a decimal part (42).
Please feel free to keep asking questions, it can be confusing!
