# Definition

Integers are a data type that are 32 bits in size. They cannot hold any decimal places, are whole numbers, and can be positive or negative.

# Relevance

Integers are commonly used for counting in programming such as for indexes in collections or keeping track of iterations in loops.

# Explanation

Integers can be used for arithmetic expressions such as addition, multiplication, division in programming. However, if the result is being saved into an integer, the result should be a whole number. Otherwise, the result will truncate (round to a whole number) which may create undesired results.
