Ruby Ruby Basics Numbers Numeric Types

okay this one really confused me. I understand the concepts in the video but how would I assign Fixnum or Float ?

I'm a little confused on this one

number = 2

1 Answer

By default, a whole number is a Fixnum. To make a whole number a float, add a .0 at the end.

integer = 2
float = 2.0
