Python for Newbies - Interacting with the User

input works just like raw_input, except Python interprets the variables as whatever is typed in. If that didn’t make much sense, think of it this way: If you have a straight-up number, it’s stored as a number. If you have some values in [] brackets, it’s stored as a list. You can even put something in quotes to have a string.
