Why don't we need quotations for numbers or booleans?

I have a question about using let as a variable. In one example, the value assigned to the variable after the = sign is put in quotes, and in other examples (the Boolean false and the number), no quotes were used. Is there an easy way to remember when quotes should be used and when they shouldn’t?

The quotes is used only with string argument, boolean and number don’t need it.
If you put quotes around a number, or boolean, it will be treated as a String

When declaring a variable using let and that variable being a number or a boolen, is quoatations not required?

Given quotation marks are for strings, so no

We only use quotes (’’, “”) for strings. Not for numbers and boolean.

We don’t use let as a variable. We assign variables using let

Although both are primitive data types but symbols, numbers, boolean, null and undefined are all used without quotes (’ ').

Whereas, only string is used with quotes. For reference this information is available from from the very initial chapters of JS.

Just like numbers have their own identity like 4 and -4 are different from each other and mean different completely. The integers , symbols and etc are unique on their own. Boolean values like true and false convey their meaning as booleans when written in lowercase without any quotes…so in my understanding I told …
