# Can we put float or non-integral values while inputting it from user side and convert the final output of the two no.s??

I am suggesting like this if anyone can help me because it states that if non-integral value or float passed as an input it can cause error. Below is the example which I did work upon it executed without any error: >>>float(input("Enter a:")) + float(input("Enter b:")) Enter a: 40.0 Enter b:3.5 43.5 Please can anyone clear my doubt???

float(input()) tries to convert your input, which is of string format, to float. If you write '40.0', that works, because Python can understand it as a float. But if you write '40.z', you will get an error, because that string doesn't make sense as a float.

Hey HonFu [#GoGetThatBugChamp!] Actually asked about numbers so there z can't be put and I also put 3.5 as an input value so python considers float but in that lesson they mentioned that we can't take float or non-integral values as it can cause error so then can you explain it once again??

I just looked it up. I think it is sloppily written. They seem to mean this: non-(integer or float)

But, then which numerical values can't be considered and cause an error??

They just mean, that the string has to come in a shape that is recognizable as an int or a float, and not something like 'shulrtzg'.

Okay as per your answer it is clear that all numerical values are accepted except string values Thanks
