Numeric (number) data can be in two forms:- **Integer** and **Real**.

**Integer Numbers:**

**#** Integers are made up of **whole numbers** (numbers without decimals).

**#** Integers can be both **positive** and **negative** values.

For example:- the number **123** is an integer. **-123** is also an integer.

**Real Numbers:**

**#** Real numbers are those that include** decimals**.

**#** Real numbers can be both **positive **(above zero) and **negative** (below zero).

For example:- the number **33.5** is a real number. **-33.5** is also a real number.
