It's easy to crunch numbers in Python. Let's add two numbers and print the result:
print(1.5 + 2)
The result of running this code is:
We can also store the numbers in variables, and then add the values using the variables:
a = 1.5 b = 2 print(a + b)
Variables are often used to store input from users (e.g. if we created a calculator application), and then do things with those values later.
