 2 The standard type for a simple number is an integer. When the number is too big for an integer, it is automatically converted into a long. Here is the Python documentation on longs. answered 08 Mar '12, 16:14 Mark Brownstein 3.1k●9●22●67
 0 The number is larger than the python interpreter can process. If your answer is correct, you'll see that it produces the same result. answered 08 Mar '12, 16:10 David Harris 8.1k●21●55●111 Follow-up question: I get the exact same number but no long when I print the output. Edit: nvm, long is added when using return. (08 Mar '12, 16:20) Arik Beremzon
 0 It is because the number is to big for a regular integer, the L denotes a Long. See this link in the python reference answered 08 Mar '12, 16:13 Marc-Andre P... 87●1●7
