Hi mate

choosing ur data type is mostly depends on the value or data that the variable holds. every data type got certain range for it if the value of the variable exceeds the range it returns some garbage.

int is used when the number is between 32,000 and -32,000.
float is used when the number involves decimal point.
double is used for larger numbers..eg.1000000000000000000
