how can i prove that a number is an integer in python?

## Recommended Answers

Jump to Postfor Ex.

x = 10

print x

print type (x)it should show you that x ia 10 and its interger "<type 'int'>".

Jump to PostThe function sqrt(x) returns a float:

`import math x = 9 y = math.sqrt(x) print y, type(y) # 3.0 <type 'float'>`

If you want the result to be an integer use int(y).

Jump to PostYou can also use

`isinstance()`

method to check whether an object is an instance or type of a class[everything in Python is an object]`>>> v=9 >>> if isinstance(v, int): print 'int' int`

Jump to Postbut how can i prove for example that the result of sqrt(n) is an integer?

You can do this (maybe is there more elegant way)

`if math.sqrt(n) == float(int(math.sqrt(n))): print "sqrt(n) is an integer"`
