What is a boolean?
A boolean is a variable that is either True or False. We say the datatype of a variable can be booelan.
You can think of it like a light switch, its either on or off. Its based on the smallest unit in a computer, a bit. A bit is a value that is either 0 (False) or 1 (True). You can view a bit as synonym of boolean for now.
In Python you do not need to explicitly data types. To use one, assign a boolean value to a variable.
To define a boolean in Python we simply type:
light = False
If you want to set it to on, you would type:
light = True
The value of a variable can be shown like so:
You can also type:
light = 0
light = 1
which is the same as True.
