An integer in Python, also known as a 'numeric literal', is simply a name used for a numeric value. For this reason, these values are commonly called integers even if they are assigned the value of a real number in the form of an integer and a decimal value. Any numeric value can be assigned to it at any time, overwriting the previous value.
To assign a value to an integer variable, one writes a statement after the following template:
<numeric literal name> = <numeric literal value>
Some examples are:
x = 1500 pi = 3.14
