Create the variable “a” and assign it to any whole number. Create a second variable named “b” and assign it to any float

need help

Whole numbers are " 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...." and so on and floats are numbers with decimal points like "1.0, 1.1, 1.2....5.5, 5.6,5.7....." and so on!

So you'd need to set the variable "a' to any whole number value, and "b" to any value with a decimal point and you can do this using the assignment operator "=".

Something like this will do the trick:

a = 2
b = 2.5
