business and finance entertainment industry# How many digits can Int hold in C#?

1.3. 2. Modifiers in C language:

C Data types / storage Size | Range |
---|---|

int / 2 | –32,767 to 32,767 |

float / 4 | 1E–37 to 1E+37 with six digits of precision |

double / 8 | 1E–37 to 1E+37 with ten digits of precision |

long double / 10 | 1E–37 to 1E+37 with ten digits of precision |

Considering this, how many bits is an int c#?

Characteristics of the integral types

C# type/keyword | Range | Size |
---|---|---|

int | -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647 | Signed 32-bit integer |

uint | 0 to 4,294,967,295 | Unsigned 32-bit integer |

long | -9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 | Signed 64-bit integer |

ulong | 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 | Unsigned 64-bit integer |

**long int**: -2,147,483,647 to 2,147,483,647. unsigned

**long int**: 0 to 4,294,967,295.

**long long int**: -9,223,372,036,854,775,807 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807.

Keeping this in consideration, what is the highest number that can be stored in an unsigned long?

Limits on Integer Constants

Constant | Meaning | Value |
---|---|---|

INT_MAX | Maximum value for a variable of type int. | 2147483647 |

UINT_MAX | Maximum value for a variable of type unsigned int. | 4294967295 (0xffffffff) |

LONG_MIN | Minimum value for a variable of type long. | -2147483647 - 1 |

LONG_MAX | Maximum value for a variable of type long. | 2147483647 |

**int** is guaranteed to be able to hold -32767 to 32767, which requires 16 bits. In that case, **int** , is 2 **bytes**. However, implementations are free to go beyond that minimum, as you will see that many modern compilers make **int** 32-bit (which also means **4 bytes** pretty ubiquitously).
